I recently received my fall copy of Vianney News, and the “Did you know…” section on the publication’s back page caught my eye.

It highlights some very impressive facts that, I suspect, many people don’t know:

• St. John Vianney College Seminary in St. Paul is the largest college seminary in the United States.

• More than 300 people attend the Last Chance Mass every Sunday evening during the school year in its chapel.

• SJV seminarians are up every day at 5:30 am for 6:15 am prayer and holy hour.

• The typical seminarian studies 40 hours a week, and the average GPA for SJV men is 3.45.

• SJV seminarians are teaching religious education in parishes throughout the archdiocese.

• Several SJV men are invited to speak at local and national events.
