The annual collection to benefit seminarians in the Archdiocese of Baltimore will take place May 3-4 in parishes. This is the only collection throughout the year that supports the archdiocese’s effort to form and educate men to become priests. All proceeds directly support the educational costs related to seminary formation. Each seminarian is formed pastorally, humanly, intellectually and spiritually to serve the people of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. It costs some $30,000 annually to educate one seminarian. The Archdiocese of Baltimore has 27 seminarians, bringing total educational costs to close to $1 million.
The Vocation Office asks that people be generous.
“This is one investment that will provide years of returns,” said Andrew Veveiros, associate director of vocations for the archdiocese.
