Watch: Ask a Seminarian | Joshua Fons

"What would you say to parents who are worried or fearful or reluctant about the prospect of their son discerning a vocation to the priesthood?"

That's the big question posed in this short video to Joshua Fons who is due to be ordained to the diaconate this summer for the Diocese of Lansing on his way, Deo volente, to the sacred priesthood.

Josh who hails from the parish of Christ the King in Ann Arbor and is currently studying at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit. Please do keep Joshua in your prayers. Saint Charles Borromeo, patron of seminarians, pray for him.
