Your $400.00 sponsorship covers the cost of housing, feeding, clothing and training a new seminarian - for an entire year!
They not only serve as important spiritual leaders in that struggling nation, but they are also indispensable in providing relief to the suffering poor in the form of agricultural and economic support, plus emergency assistance with healthcare and nutrition.
In 2008, the Bishop of the Diocese of Hinche, Bishop Kebreau, visited the Parish of St. Monica. At a dinner meeting with members of the Haiti Twinning Committee, he described the difficulty he'd been having with his seminary. He was struggling to find funding to house, feed, clothe, and train his seminarians and asked if there was anything we could do to help. An idea was born.
We asked parishioners to consider sponsoring a seminarian, and as usual for the Parish of St. Monica, the response was terrific. The cost to sponsor a seminarian for a year is just $400. Sponsors receive a photo and information on their seminarian and will be in his daily prayers.
