Continue the "story of hope" for mission seminarians...

This summer, I share with you a story of hope – one written almost 200 years ago by Jeanne Bigard and her mother, Stephanie. In the late 19th century France, they responded to a letter from a Bishop from their home country, serving in Japan. Their outreach established the Society of St. Peter Apostle in 1889, providing help for some 2,700 seminarians.


Today, more than 28,000 seminarians, mostly in Asia and Africa, receive an average annual subsidy of $700 from the Society for the Propagation of the Faith / Society of St. Peter Apostle; assistance is also provided for woman and men preparing to serve as Religious Sisters and Brothers. It is because of your generosity, and others like you, that all this and more is possible.

Will you continue to write this story of hope with your gift today to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith / Society of St. Peter Apostle? Your donation provides textbooks, technology, classrooms, housing/lodging, food and medical care. With the understanding that only you know what gift amount is right for your own life circumstance, be assured that your continued support will help prepare tomorrow’s mission priests, who will proclaim the Gospel, celebrate the Sacraments, and serve the poor in the world’s most vulnerable communities.

What began with a mother and daughter continues with you!
