Run for Vocations

Registration is Open!

Run for Vocations invites runners and walkers of all experience levels to join in the upcoming Marine Corps Marathon and 10K. Each year, a group of priests, seminarians and lay people from the    Archdiocese of Washington run the marathon and 10K as a way to pray and sacrifice in support of our future priests and the Church. By joining your prayers with theirs, and by  making a donation in the name of the team, you can make a  difference.  Run for Vocations began in 1999 as a program to pray and sacrifice for future priests and the Church. Priests, seminarians, and lay people of all levels of experience were encouraged to join the Marathon and the 10K as runners or walkers and to enlist donations from supporters. In addition to individual participants, in 2009, parishes with the support of their pastors, began to form Run for Vocations teams.  For more information on donating to the Archdiocese of Washington Office of Priest Vocations or the Saint John Paul II Seminary, please contact the vocation  director,  Fr. Mark Ivany at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The Marine Corps 10K will be held on October 22, but plan to register soon, as the race fills quickly. Register at for both the 10K and Run for Vocations. All proceeds to support vocation promotion and benefit seminarians of the Archdiocese of Washington. Visit

Make a Difference for Christians in Syria

The Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in Washington, DC is part of the Franciscan Custody (province) that has served the people and shrines in the Holy Land for 800 years. Please keep the Franciscan friars and parishioners in Syria in your prayers as they struggle to keep our Catholic faith alive in the midst of the war that has engulfed this second cradle of Christianity, the place of St. Paul’s conversion.
