Five Guys for God

I promised to provide updates on our Run For Vocations team that is training for the Marine Corps 10K and marathon in October. Here is an update you don’t want to miss. More than 50 people have signed on to run and raise money for vocations. If you are not a runner but want to support vocations, have I got a deal for you!

Come join us at Five Guys Burgers on Thursday, July 23 and 20% of your purchase will be donated to the Archdiocesan Run for Vocations.  Please plan to bring a friend along as well.

  1. Eating burgers and fries definitely seems like a simpler way to support the Marathon than running 26 miles!! Count me in for Five Guys next Thursday. Anyone else coming?

  2. I suppose you can eat burgers and fries when you run a lot. As for me burgers and fries just stick to my ribs – an other places too. Thanks for the enthusiasm around vocations

  3. In 1978, during my first year of seminary at St. Francis College and Seminary in Loretto, PA, we had the annual BEER RUN. The town only had a population of about 1,200 but we had three bars, one at either end and one in the middle. The race was very simple. The bars represented three stops where the runner had to chug down a large mug of beer and continue to the next bar station. Whoever swaggered over the finish line first was the winner. Of course, the drinking age was 18 back in those days. Although a Catholic town, with a Catholic monastery, college and seminary, not all the contestants were “filled with the Spirit”; but, they were certainly inebriated by spirits at race-end.

    1. Fr. Joe, What a great story–something tells me it might be a little easier to recover from the burger and fries approach!
