Lead image Annual Bishop Bruté Days camp continues to plant seeds of priestly vocations

Transitional Deacon Matthew Perronie stood on July 6 in the chapel of Bishop Simon Bruté College Seminary before dozens of teenage boys from across central and southern Indiana open to the possibility that God might be calling them to be priests. They were there for the 16th annual Bishop Bruté Days, a summer vocations camp sponsored by the archdiocesan vocations office and hosted at the Indianapolis seminary on July 5-7.
