– Cardinal Blase J. Cupich
Parents of Seminarians and Priests
As men consider the priesthood, family members have concerns and questions. The Chicago Area Parents of Priests and Seminarians (CAPPS) meet several times a year to connect and share their experiences. When a loved one in your family has a calling, most parents don’t know what to expect. Our parent group supports each other and our sons along the path to becoming a priest.
Father Tim Monahan has asked parents of seminarians to be available to meet and discuss our experiences with families of men considering the seminary. Join us on April 30 at 3pm at St. James Parish in Arlington Heights. We will meet in the Laramie room in the basement of the church. Sign up here.
CAPPS is supported by the Serra Club of Chicago, the lay organization for vocations.
