Seminarian Education

We’ve got some great news to share!

This fall is likely to see the largest group of new seminarians in our diocese for more than a decade. 11 men are on track to enter seminary; that could bring our total number of seminarians to 31. Our prayers, your prayers, for new priestly vocations seem to be bearing fruit. Thanks be to God! Unfortunately, given the impact of the pandemic on our parish and diocesan finances, it comes along at a very difficult time financially.

These young men need our help, and now! Our diocesan costs to pay for seminarian education this year will increase by several hundred thousand dollars.

These young men need your help! Will you please make a charitable financial contribution to support Seminarian Education this year? Your gift to Seminarian Education will be used to provide for the costs of educating seminarians of the Diocese of Lansing in the current or coming academic year. The funds will be used for traditional costs of an undergraduate or a graduate degree – tuition, room & board, required fees, etc. Your gift will help bring a whole generation of priests to our parishes and our people – thank you!
