Seminarian collection Jan. 2-3

The special collection for this weekend – Jan. 2-3 – is for our Seminarians. We ask you for generosity, as this helps support the Orlando Diocese seminarians.

Preparing for the Sacrament of Holy Orders is a 7-9 year process. It entails intellectual, spiritual, pastoral and human formation, preparing men to answer the call they have received to serve God’s people in love and humility.

The full cost of a seminary tuition, insurance and books exceeds $400,000 during the formation period.

Your support ensures that money is never an obstacle between a man and this sacred calling. Please give generously to help these men who are willing to lay down their lives in service to our Lord’s Church.

You can give to this collection using the envelope in your packet. Or you can give online through our Online Giving portal (add “Seminarian Collection” in the Special Intention field).
