Meet our seminarians

Seminarians in the Archdiocese of Seattle have begun their journey toward the priesthood. Please pray for these men as they continue on their path of formation and discernment.


There are a variety of ways to help support our seminarians! Read below to learn more about the 14 men currently in our program. We invite you to participate as you are able: Donate to the seminarian education fund, download the mailing list and send letters of encouragement, keep them in your daily prayers, join an organization that supports seminarians such as Crozier Society, Serra Club, Catholic Daughters, or Knights of Columbus, and invite other young men in your parish or family to consider a vocation to the priesthood, encouraging them to pray about it. (Clicking below on "Seminarian Education Fund" will take you to our Crozier Society donation page; you do not need to be a member to contribute to the fund.)

Please keep Grant Habersetzer, Erick Johns, and Maliko Madden in your prayers as they continue their vocational discernment outside of the seminarian program.
