Priests for Our Parishes

Dear Friends in Christ,

“Your homily inspired one of my bridesmaids to go to church.”

These words from a recent bride to a newly ordained priest are powerful!

The bride continued, “She said your words made her believe in marriage again.”

This is the effect a priest can have when he proclaims the truth of the Gospel with passion and zeal!

Saint Francis de Sales Seminary continues to form an increasing number of priests like this for our parish communities. We have prepared 26 men for Holy Orders in the last three years! The Archdiocese of Milwaukee will ordain 20 priests between 2022 and 2024! That is 15% of the total number of active priests in the Archdiocese!

Your commitment to our mission has placed new priests in cities, in the suburbs, and in the countryside. Up north and on the south side of Milwaukee. These selfless men are renewing the Church through their dedication to the Lord and His people. Thank you for adding life into parishes through your support of priestly formation.

Priests formed at Saint Francis de Sales Seminary have a deep love of the Lord and His Church. They are fathers who will form your families in faith. They are able to offer an intelligent and articulate response to secularism, relativism and ideologies which destroy the dignity of the human person. They are evangelists who will bring your loved ones back to the faith and shepherds who will bestow the healing power of the sacraments.

You can help us to form more priests for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and beyond! Please prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift today. Your donation will assist 80 good men who desire to serve. Your kindness will ensure that we can fill as many parishes as possible with priests whose hearts are conformed to Christ.

Thank you for everything you have already done for the Salesianum. We are grateful for your prayers and your financial support. May God reward you for your generosity.

Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Luke Strand

P.S. Please consider making a gift in celebration of the 13 men who will be ordained this spring!
