Celebrate a new springtime for the Catholic Church in America
There is exciting news in our country’s mission dioceses! In a time when most Catholics think that the priest shortage has reached near-epidemic proportions, mission dioceses have actually seen increased seminarian enrollment—by approximately 10 percent over the past 10 years.
While a blessing, this growth creates a unique financial burden for mission dioceses that already dedicate a large portion of their annual budgets to the recruitment and education of seminarians. Through their generous gifts toward seminarian education, Catholic Extension donors are a blessing to these dioceses. Their donations ensure that there is no financial barrier preventing young men from answering God’s call to serve where they’re needed most.
Show your support for the young men who are called by God to serve as priests in America’s mission dioceses.
