Archbishop Daniel Expresses Gratitude for Supporters of “SOS” Efforts

CHICAGO, IL [DOM] – His Eminence Archbishop Daniel of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest has issue a letter thanking all of the donors of the diocesan “Support Our Seminarians” campaign which raises money that goes directly to assisting the diocesan seminarians.

In his letter, the Archbishop stated, “I write to thank you all for the generous financial support of our diocesan seminarians in our annual Support Our Seminarians collection.  Due to the special generosity of four of our parishes, we were able to double last year’s donations and are thus are able to provide more financial support for our seminarians and their families as they prepare for ordination and priestly ministry within the Diocese of the Midwest.” The full letter can be read here. 

The Chancery of the Diocese of the Midwest reported that over $20,000 dollars was collected in during 2023 effort, which was more than double the amount raised the previous year.

The Midwest currently has 10 students studying at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary and St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary to assist the diocese upon graduation. Three of those seminarians are expected to graduate this spring and be assigned to parishes in the diocese.
