Current Campaign

Saint Francis de Sales Seminary

You have begged the Lord for priests, and He has answered your plea! This year, our good and gracious God has blessed Saint Francis de Sales Seminary with over 70 seminarians. Praise the Lord! Thank you for your faithful prayers … keep it up!

There are many needs that come with our astonishing growth. We need more beds, desks, food and Wi-Fi capacity. We have had to create new student rooms in another building and move the seminarian dining room into the larger Inner Commons. We have hired more faculty and bought more books. It is the price of having more men answering the Lord’s call. And the benefit? A mighty band of brothers who will take on the concerns of the world together.

We are not just building new rooms – we are building a brotherhood of priests who will stand firm in defending the faith and bring Jesus to a world very much in need. These 73 men support each other in their mutual quest for holiness and challenge each other to do the hard work of conforming their lives to Christ.

Our seminarians have bravely stepped forward to answer the Lord’s call. Now we need you to step up and help us form them. Your gift today will ensure that our men receive the best formation possible. I promise you that our program is faithful to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, is academically rigorous and centerearound the Truth. 

Please prayerfully considering joining us on this sacred mission by making a gift today. Your continued support has brought us to this blessedtime of growing enrollment — please help us keep the momentum going! Your donation makes a difference in the lives of your future priests.

Grace and peace, 
Father John Hemsing
