By: Denise Hummel, Director at Large, Seminarian Support

From coast to coast, as chapel doors are opening, many dioceses are joining the Archdiocese for the Military Services in celebrating the ordinations of co-sponsored seminarians.  These seminarians are appreciative of our prayers as they take this next-step to serving as our promised priests.  Join me in praying for these men:

As we continue to support our seminarians and look forward to gathering in San Antonio this November, we are excited to share details regarding our Promised Priest Silent Auction. The auction is one of the most enjoyed, long-standing traditions of MCCW retreats and forums. You are invited to create a themed basket for our Promised Priest Silent Auction. All baskets need to be pre-registered by completing this Google form:  

Proceeds generated from the auction will directly benefit the Military Council of Catholic Women Endowed Co-Sponsored Seminarian Scholarship. We thank you and continue to ask for your support of our perpetual charity.  

We are also excited to share that one of our co-sponsored seminarians, David Chacko, will be present during Forum 2020. He looks forward to sharing his vocation story with you and will attend our banquet and Promised Priest Silent Auction. As you make final plans to attend the wonderful MCCW reunion in San Antonio, remember to prepare a themed basket, pack your checkbooks, and show your love and support for our beloved seminarians — those who will one day serve both God and country.
