Coming July 30 - 31
Support 33 Seminarians
With just $1 a month
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 M., so the need is great.
To fill this need, St Joseph Knights of Columbus Assembly 3439 in coordination with the Archdiocese of San Antonio have formed the Dollar Club. This is new in the Archdiocese and started right here at St Joseph-Honey Creek.
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 July 30/31. Make checks payable to St Joseph with a Memo: Dollar Club.
