Seminarian Dinner & Collection

Seminarian Collection

The seminarian collection is held in every parish across the diocese and occurs during one of the first weekends in August. Donations to this collection support the tuition, books and board and summer ministry expenses of the seminarians, as well as recruitment of future seminarians. Thank you for your continued prayers and support of our seminarians.

Seminarian Dinner

The annual seminarian fundraising dinner takes place each year in August and provides a unique setting for the faithful of the diocese to meet the men who are discerning a call to the priesthood. We hope and pray that these men will one day become great priests for future generations of Catholics within our diocese. This event is a fundraising dinner to support our seminarians. It includes time to socialize, evening prayer, dinner and a brief program. 

Prayers and financial support are essential to the vocational discernment of our seminarians. Donations to the seminarian fund supports the tuition, summer ministry, books, room and boarding expenses of our current seminarians, as well as recruitment of future seminarians. The average annual cost to educate one seminarian is more than $50,000. If you have any questions, please call Corrina Hudsonpillar at 785-639-2100.
