“SOS!”  September is “Support Our Seminarians” Month!


CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] — Once again, September has been designated “Support Our Seminarians” Month in the Diocese of the Midwest as His Grace, Bishop Paul, calls upon the faithful to support the growing number of diocesan seminarians — many of whom are married with children.

SOS September is Support Our Seminarians Month!“Offering assistance to our seminarians, who face the burden of educational and ever-increasing living expenses — especially for those who are married — is vital,” said Bishop Paul.  “We once again count on our most generous diocesan faithful to respond generously — and responsibly — in assisting those who will be serving the People of God as pastors and Church leaders well into the 21st century.”

In an effort to build awareness of our seminarians’ needs, flyers are available for downloading and distribution in all parishes during the month of September.  The flyer is available in color or black-and-white PDF formats.  All donations from parishes as well as individuals — culminating in “SOS Sunday” on September 24 — will be distributed directly to the seminarians to offset the cost of their educational and living expenses.

Regardless of how a parish chooses to raise SOS funds, the result will help ensure that our seminarians and their families will find some measure of “relief” from increasing living and educational expenses.
