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.
