Thanks to your generosity, the Dollar Club raised over $5,700 last year.
The need is still great; plan to support the Dollar Club in 2017.
Currently there are 33 seminarians in formation. The annual living and educational cost for each seminarian is about $50,000. Therefore, the total annual requirement is $1.6 MM.
To fill this need, St Joseph Knights of Columbus Assembly 3439 in coordination with the Archdiocese of San Antonio formed the Dollar Club in 2016.
You can help each seminarian, by simply donating a $1 a month. All proceeds go directly to the Seminarian Formation Endowment Fund that supports the living and educational expenses of our seminarians. This should not be confused with the Assumption Seminary Fund, which is solely for the operation of the Assumption building.
Seminarian Formation Endowment Fund
(as stated on the Archdiocese of San Antonio web page)
In partnership with the Catholic Community Foundation - an autonomous pious foundation based here in San Antonio, we have developed the Seminarian Formation Endowment Fund to meet our continuing financial needs in forming our seminarians. Because of the nature of the Endowment, each dollar donated continues to raise further funds in perpetuity, making the endowment the perfect way to ensure future resources for priestly formation.
Each parishioner and, if possible, their family members are encouraged to join the Dollar Club by donating $1 a month or a one-time donation of $12.
Donations can be made during the second collection on January 28 / 29
Make checks payable to St Joseph with a Memo: Dollar Club.
