Pass the Word: Students from diocese visit St. Mary’s Seminary in Baltimore


Young men from the Diocese of Wilmington toured St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore, Md., April 17, to learn about seminary life first-hand.

Students from St. Mark’s and St. Elizabeth high schools, St. Thomas More and Archmere academies were among the visitors to St. Mary’s, greeted by Bishop Malooly, Father Joseph Cocucci, diocesan director of Priestly and Religious Vocations and Sulpician Father Thomas S. Hurst, rector of St. Mary’s.

The visit was part of the vocations office’s annual Pass the Word 2012 vocations program.
