IPF's Goals for the Summer Seminarian Program
1. To awaken and deepen relational prayer with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, effecting a participation in Christ's own pastoral charity.
2. To foster the seminarian's joy and delight as he is assisted to appropriate his identity as a "contemplative even in action" rooted in the call to be beloved son, chaste spouse, spiritual physician, spiritual father and good shepherd.
3. To guide the seminarian in a radical reorientation to Christ unleashing in him an affectively mature embrace of chaste celibacy leading to his sharing in Christ's own self-donation to His Bride, the Church.
4. To form future shepherds as teachers of prayer and discernment to serve the laity in their (own) call to holiness as transformers of culture.
Every Friday, the IPF 10:30 Mass is a "Spanish-English" Mass. The prayers and songs are prayed in Spanish; the readings are in English as is the homily. If you want to experience this beautiful liturgy, come any Friday to St. John's Church on the Creighton campus. Families are not only invited but encouraged to attend and experience the universality of the Catholic Church.
