Seminary education campaign hits 95 percent of goal
the Inland Register
(From the Sept. 9, 2004 edition of the Inland Register)
The Campaign for the Education of Seminarians, “Here I am, Lord, send me,” reached $9.55 Million over the summer months. So far more than 6,500 Catholic families have contributed to the campaign.
The campaign is being conducted to raise additional funds for the endowment in the Catholic Foundation that supports the education of future priests, construction of a new building for Bishop White Seminary, operating expenses for the seminary program and the 2004 Annual Catholic Appeal. Gifts to the campaign can be made payable over four years in monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually payments to fit the individual donor’s needs and situation. Donations of stock, life insurance, charitable remainder trusts and bequests provide other opportunities for individuals and families to make gifts.
Follow-up for the campaign is continuing over the next several weeks. We anticipate being at the goal by November 1st. Contributions are still being accepted to reach and even surpass the goal.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers for this important effort for our diocese.
