Seminarian and Religious

SJA Parishioners in Formation

St. Joan of Arc is very blessed to have a seminarian, and a young woman discerning the religious life, and a young man who is discerning a religious life to become a brother.

Please keep all of our religious in your prayers and continue to pray that all of our young people will listen and discern their calling from God.

Prayer to Saint Junipero Serra for Vocations

O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner but rather that he be converted and live, grant we beseech you, through the intercession of the Blessed Mary ever Virgin, Saint Joseph, her spouse, Saint Junipero Serra, and all the saints, an increase of laborers for Your Church, fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever. Amen.

 We were so blessed to have 2 priests ordained into the Sacred Order of Priesthood in June 2018! Fr. James De Oreo and Fr. DiCarlo. Fr. De Oreo is a son of St. Joan of Arc.
