Saint John’s Catholic Prep, located in Frederick, MD, is hosting the seventh annual “Men in Black” basketball game on Friday, April 12 at 7:00 p.m. to raise awareness for vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life. The event features a basketball game between the “Men in Black”, Catholic priests and seminarians, and teens from area Catholic schools and parishes and includes special half-time activities. The game will take place at the new campus of Saint John’s Catholic Prep located at 3989 Buckeystown Pike, Frederick, MD 21717.  

This will be the seventh year for the Men in Black basketball game, an annual event in which priests and seminarians from the Archdiocese of Baltimore come together to compete in a basketball game against teens from Catholic schools and parishes. In addition to the fun and excitement of the game, it provides a positive environment for teens to learn about and consider a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. Teens get to meet priests and religious in a relaxed setting and see that a vocation is a fun and healthy option for their future.
