Support Our Seminarians

21 June 2018

 

The Catholic Foundation Diocese of Parramatta supports works of Faith, Hope and Charity across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains. Our current appeal seeks to build support for our seminarians. If you would like to help, please click here to make a donation today.

If you haven’t donated yet, but would like to, there is still time! Thank you for supporting our seminarians, and the good work they do in our community.

When people think of our seminarians, ideas of young men living in solitude and silence for the sole purpose of prayer and study might come to mind, ceasing only for the occasional meal and rest.

However, although there is rigorous study and deep spiritual prayer, our seminarians also do a great deal of volunteering within the community.

You might be interested to know our seminarians regularly visit the local refugee centre and provide food hampers to the less fortunate. They visit the housebound and sick, the deaf and hard of hearing and teach at state schools.

“Holy Spirit Seminary strengthens my love for God, and provides me the opportunity to serve others. Whether it be catechises in State Schools or handing out food hampers to the less fortunate, I want to express God’s love, and encounter Him in others”. 
Tom joined the seminary in 2016 and volunteers every week.

These are great stories and are the continued fruits from your generosity.

The good news doesn’t end there either.

We now have the good challenge of a growing seminary and need your help to facilitate the growing number of vocations.

You may have donated already via your parish, and for this we are very grateful – thank you.

If you haven’t donated yet, but would like to, there is still time!

Your gift will ensure Holy Spirit Seminary is able to accept as many vocations as possible and will also continue to produce many good works extending into the wider community, carried out by our seminarians.

Please donate today and provide a gift that will keep on giving.

Thank you again for your ongoing support, and for sustaining our works of Faith across Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

You may have donated already via your parish, and for this we are very grateful – thank you. If you haven’t donated yet, but would like to, there is still time!

Please consider continuing your support, by making a gift for our seminarians by June 30. Click here to make a donation: www.yourcatholicfoundation.org.au/sm
