Be Christ’s Light for Others Collection

“Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out onto you.” Luke 6:38

Each parish is part of the Church Universal; it is the Catholic Church in a particular place. The bishops of the United States created the national collections so that, by combining resources, we can more effectively carry out our mission as Catholics. Each of these important collections is worthy of your support. Each collection represents our community of faith at work in the world, saving souls and improving lives.

Retired Priests and Seminarians

 It has been your generosity and kindness that continues to give new life to the senior priests who have faithfully served our local Church so generously for so many years. This special and important collection supports 17 retired priests and up to 13 men studying for the priesthood this fall.

Your generous contributions make possible to fund the seminarians’ education and honors our senior priests. Although these are challenging times, we hope you consider donating to this collection.

“…Please be generous, as we spend out lifetime serving you…Please be generous to the seminarians…for they will be the new priests who continue to serve you.” ~Msgr. Perron J. Auve
