Summer Repairs


Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

You and I both know a well-maintained home takes good care of those who live within.

Our Sacred Heart Monastery is home to more than 100 men preparing to serve the Lord. The upkeep of the monastery is personally meaningful to me as I was ordained at Sacred Heart 48 years ago.

It is a lot of work, and expensive, to maintain the buildings on our Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology campus. We try to chip away with needed improvements as time and donations are available.

So, you can imagine how excited I was to find out a special group of friends has offered $100,000 to help fund maintenance projects through a special 5-times matching pledge.

Can I count on you to help make these needed improvements by sending your gift today?

Every dollar donated by August 26, 2022 will be worth FIVE TIMES as much in meeting our needed repairs.

  • Your $15 gift will become $75 to help repair septic systems and pluming in the Novitiate and Dehon Houses.
  • A $20 gift will become $100 to help replace generator systems in the school and retirement home.
  • A $35 gift will become $175 to help remodel guest rooms at the school.

As you know, we live simply and do not require luxury. However, we need to keep our facilities and campus up-to-date to help in the recruitment of more men for the priesthood.

A bright, modern, well-functioning facility helps reflect the vitality and excellence of our seminary programs.

You and I appreciate the great need for more priests. With this special pledge, your matching gift will have five times the impact and help fill our churches with needed priests!

Once again, I am counting on your friendship, kindness and sacrificial gift during this special campaign.


Sincerely in the Sacred Heart,

Father Dominic
