Seminary 5X Matching Gift


The priesthood is the love of the Heart of Jesus. - St. John Vianney

Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,

Thank you for your prayers and generous support over the years. Because of you and your faith, our ministry of preparing men for the priesthood and spreading God's unconditional love to the poorest of the poor here in the United States and abroad continues!

We are currently in the process of upgrades to our 50-year-old building so that we may grow seminary enrollment. Our next phase is scheduled for May through September of 2020 and includes:

  • Upgraded technology for five classrooms.
  • 25 single suites (each having its own bathroom).
  • Rector and faculty suites and 2 small laundries.
  • Upgrades to 5 small offices for teaching priests.

We are seeking funds for these needed upgrades and would ask you to support our efforts with your prayers and, if possible, a gift. Donations of all sizes will be needed in order to fund these renovations and we'll be using a 3-year pledge period - 2019, 2020 and 2021. With your help we'll be able to rejuvenate our beloved seminary - sending a signal to men that the Priests of the Sacred Heart is ready to help them seize the opportunity to answer God's call to the ministry.


I hope today you will find it in your heart to send a gift of $100, $150, or possibly $250 to help us reach our current goal of $1,000,000.

You can view the floor plans of the renovations and our booklet, "Preparing Priests for the Future of the Catholic Church" detailing the renovation plans.

I'm very pleased to tell you that friends of the seminary have agreed to match every gift, dollar-for-dollar, up to $400,000! That means your donation will be doubled and go twice as far.
