Seminarian Support Collection
This year, we are adding a special collection for Seminarians. With the added number of vocations and ordinations, we are in the midst of a good problem. The cost of tuition, room and board, and books, takes a considerable amount of money.
Through a generous matching grant from Catholic Extension, every dollar will be matched on a 1:1 basis up to $32,500 - so your donations will go even farther to support our seminarians!
For the benefit of their formation, our seminarians are not allowed to hold outside jobs during the summer, but are assigned parish ministry. During the year, they assist at diocesan events and speak at parishes and schools. For this work, we also help them with fuel and mileage reimbursements. Some seminarians also take on private tutoring in Spanish to help them in their ministry assignments. Your donations will be used to cover these costs.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support of seminarians and please continue to pray for an increase of all vocations. See our diocesan Prayer for Vocations and more about our Seminarians at doy.org/seminarians
