|Friend to Seminarians|
The Friend to Seminarians is a development program that encourages individuals to provide financial support needed to educate diocesan seminarians. Individuals can become a Friend to Seminarians by making an annual gift of $5,000 or more.
The average cost of educating a seminarian for one year exceeds $25,000. Bishop Jugis hosts several dinners during the year that include presentations by some current seminarians and an invitation to invest in future priests.
A new $75,000 Challenge Gift each year for four years, beginning in FY 2010-2011, encourages increased giving levels and new gifts for the program. For more information about the Friend to Seminarians Program contact:
