All Things Seminarian

By: Denise Hummel, Director of Seminarian Support

The Need Is Great

Did you know that the Archdiocese for the Military Services chaplains serve over 1.8 million Catholics? With fewer than 200 active-duty priests, serving all branches of service, our need for priests is great!

In 2019, MCCW established our first endowed scholarship to financially support our perpetual charity — our beloved seminarians.  Stay tuned to both email and Facebook to learn how MCCW will continue to connect, unite, and inspire our members in an online platform this coming November.  

Silent Auction

Traditionally, MCCW hosts a silent auction at Retreats and Forums to financially support The Military Council of Catholic Women Endowed Co-Sponsored Seminarian Scholarship.  This tradition will now continue as our first-ever Promised Priest VIRTUAL Silent Auction.  All proceeds will benefit our perpetual charity: our co-sponsored seminarians.  

Please be creative in your entry — we would love to have a variety of themed entries.  Some ideas include but are not limited to: Time for Tea, Our Daily Bread, Tiny Saints, Shining Light Dolls, Marian, Sacred Heart, etc.  We would also welcome gift cards for ease of mailing to the winning bidder.  

Completed forms are *now* due by October 20, 2020.  Each donor will be responsible for shipping their item to the highest bidder.   Please accurately estimate your shipping costs to the best of your ability in the form HERE

For any additional questions regarding the Promised Priest Silent Auction, please contact Denise Hummel at or (913) 680-9455. Thank you for generously sharing your gifts!


MCCW’s Adopt-a-Seminarian program connects current AMS seminarians and military chapel groups. Through prayer, letters, and care packages, the chapels provide support to their adopted seminarian and the seminarian learns more about military life through regular contact with families like those he will serve in the future.
