The event is free including the meal. The Foundation will be making an ask for donations to either the Seminarian Formation Program to support this year’s tuition of the seminarians or to the Seminarian Education Endowment Fund to provide for the long-term support of our Seminarian Program. Our goal is to increase the endowment fund for seminarians to $10 million which will provide an annual distribution of $400,000 for seminarian education. The fund’s value is currently at $1.5 million.
This year, the Diocese will have 23 men in formation who are studying at Assumption Seminary in San Antonio, St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston, Mundelein Seminary in Chicago, Conception College in Missouri, Sacred Heart Seminary in Milwaukee, and St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in El Paso.
