Just like our patron saints in heaven that we ask to look out for us, you can become a Patron of Our Seminarians through your membership in this program. You will directly sponsor our ‘spiritual sons’ who are in priestly formation for the Diocese of Harrisburg. All financial gifts will be used for the education of our seminarians.
Good Priests do not just happen
“By investing in our seminarians’ education and formation, you are truly investing in the mission of Jesus Christ and His Church here in the Diocese of Harrisburg.”
– Bishop Ronald W. Gainer
We have 19 men studying for the Priesthood for our Diocese. With that blessing comes a great responsibility to provide the proper and necessary support for those discerning God’s Will for their lives.
This year the cost for a man in priestly formation for the Diocese of Harrisburg is approximately $44,000. Men who study for the priesthood, along with their families, willingly take on a substantial portion of this financial commitment. The Diocese, out of love and justice, takes on the remaining financial obligation.
