Sponsor a Seminarian


It’s 6 a.m. Father Joseph is already on his donkey riding into the mountains. A sick child needs anointing. An elderly parishioner is waiting for Communion. A married couple needs his mediating skills. It’s a typical day for this priest in Pernchamkutty, a village of poor farmers in south India. What do his parishioners think of him? They’re unanimous! They love their priest.

There’s so much bad news about priests these days. We’re all ashamed. But there’s an incredible amount of good news, too — good news that hardly ever makes the headlines. Hundreds of thousands of priests are good news — and preach good news every day, by word and example. Thanks be to God.

Make some more good news: Vocations to the priesthood are abundant in the countries CNEWA serves. Young men are eager to teach, pray for and minister to the needs of their people. Help one of these eager seminarians respond to the call of the Lord with your prayers and generous financial assistance.

Sponsor him with your monthly gift of $84 — it will pay for his education, room and board. Or sponsor him in part — your monthly contribution of $56 or $28 a month, with the help of another generous soul like you, does the same.

How often we say, “Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” May your love and generosity help kindle a flame of faith and faithfulness in the hearts of one of these young men. And may the good Lord bless and reward you for lighting a way for a priest.

YES, I’ll sponsor a seminarian.
