Support Vocations in the Pope's Missions

Project Leader:

Pope Francis

Your gift this summer to the Society of St. Peter Apostle, one of the Pope’s mission societies, helps young men preparing for the priesthood at seminaries throughout the Pope’s missions in Africa and Asia. Prayers and financial help are needed as they answer their vocations, prepare to celebrate the Sacraments, and offer the message of the Gospel to uplift the poor. They are “courageous witnesses”!

Your generosity also provides for those preparing to serve as religious Sisters or Brothers. In the first year it was established (1889), the Society of St. Peter Apostle sent help for some 2,700 seminarians in the Missions, including the missions of the United States at that time. Today, some 35,500 major seminarians, mostly in Africa (19,500) and Asia (16,000), receive an annual subsidy of $700 per student. Religious novices (close to 10,000) also receive about $250-$300 for their studies.

Your gift of $25 this summer supporting vocations and educating a future priest or religious is a blessing that brings the witness of the Gospel to vulnerable mission communities around the globe. Thank you!
