One of the great things about putting together a team like this is the way that it helps to build the community. When everyone is working together toward one goal, each person doing what he can, there is a real sense of comaradarie that develops among all the participants and everyone starts to take ownership in reaching that goal. If something like this is successful, not only are individual lives changed, but a community is changed, and in this case, an Archdiocese.
On our Donations page you will find two great opportunities to take part in what has already begun in the Archdiocese. Over the past four years the number of college seminarians has nearly quadrupled from 4 to 15! The spirit and energy in these young men to serve the people of the Archdiocese is palpable and exciting to be around. With your help this spirit and energy can continue to grow and these fine young men will be able to discern more freely their call to become outstanding young priests who are on fire with the desire to shepherd and save souls. The first way you can contribute to this cause is by way of prayer. The power of prayer is very strong and its effect can be far greater than any monetary donation you can offer due to its lasting spiritual effect. Please consider offering a rosary once a week, or a decade every day, or offering a holy hour once a month, or fasting for one day; anything you choose. Just let us know about it on our Donations page and know of our gratitude for your extra efforts. Secondly, If you can, we would also very much appreciate a monetary donation. We can’t offer scholarships to seminarians with great financial need without it, after all. There are two ways of offering that donation: online contributions in the form of credit card or EFT, or personal check sent by mail (the tried and true, old-fashioned way).
No matter what way you choose to help, we can’t thank you enough for your support!
