Meet our Seminarians


“I felt like I’d never get to my ordination because of all the obstacles in my way…I feel so blessed and thankful to everyone who walked alongside me.” ~Fr. Lalo Chávez.

In 2020, your marvelous response to the Special Collection for Priest Retirement and Seminarian Education (PR/SE) resulted in the Church collecting a total of $318,490 towards funding those priests who have served you for many years, as well as those men seeking to serve your local Church in the future. God has indeed blessed His Local Church with generous hearts like yours!

The upcoming Diocesan Priest Retirement and Seminarian Education (PR/SE) Special Collection is scheduled to take place the entire month of July.

This year, our diocesan goal is $225,00. Your generous gift of $25, $50, $100, $500 or more to this collection will make a huge difference now and for the future of our Church. If mailing in your donation please make checks payable to the “Diocese of Yakima,” with a notation on the check that funds are to go to the Diocesan Collection for Priest Retirement and Seminarian Education Collection (PR/SE Collection). Please mail your donation directly to the Diocese of Yakima at PO BOX 2189, Yakima, WA 98907

If you have any questions feel free to contact Daisy Perez, Executive Administrator for the Office of Stewardship & Development and Vocations at (509) 965-7117

If you’re able, please donate to the PR/SE Special Collection. If you are unable to donate at this time, there are many other ways you can support us. You can continue to keep our senior priests and seminarians in your daily prayers. You can advocate and share with your family and friends on your social media!
