The Office for Vocations held a Come and See Weekend at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary May 4-6. The weekend provided young men who are discerning a call to the priesthood the opportunity to stay that Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary, participate in a few Seminary functions and meet with the Allentown Seminarians.
