We have all been there, we all know what it is like when you have decided you are going to do something and then everything falls apart or one excuse after another crops up into your mind and that thing you promised yourself was going to get done, that goal you half way set in the back of your mind, gets pushed right out of consciousness. Well, that’s not going to happen this time.

FPM_Logo_15Years1In less than 5 months, on May 4th and 5th, the 15th annual Flying Pig Marathon is happening here in the Queen City and we have a team who is awaiting new members. We want to help you, to motivate you, to inspire you with a cause.

This cause, in our minds, is one of the most noble causes one can find; by joining our team and supporting our cause, you will be helping to support and sustain men as they discern their vocation to become Doctors of Souls! The priests of tomorrow are in our seminary today and they need help. You can help them! But you must make a commitment.

CommitmentWill you commit to joining our team and running in one of the Flying Pig Marathon races? There are races for every skill level from a 25 yard dash for the children all the way up to the 4-Way (Full Marathon, 5K and 10K) for the uber runners and everything inbetween (1-mile for the 13 and under crowd, 5K and 10K on Saturday, Half Marathon, 4-Person Relay, and Full Marathon on Sunday). Or will you commit to being a prayer warrior? We are in great need of people who will sacrifice even just a little part of their day on behalf of our seminarians. prayer warriorYou can offer a Mass, a holy hour, a rosary, 3 Hail Marys, you name it; every little bit helps. Perhaps you can offer another type of sacrifice for our men in formation. Maybe you will choose to not eat meat on Wednesdays, or keep away from chocolate on Thursdays, or skip that cup of coffee on Mondays. These small sacrifices can lead to great rewards for this cause and we need all the help we can get.

At any rate, please join our team, become a prayer warrior or make a commitment to cheer on our team members as we Run for the Call! We all have a vocation, are you committed to chase after yours?
