2016 Good Shepherd Campaign - An Initiative of the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface, in Support of Our Seminarians
The diocesan 2016 Good Shepherd Campaign is being launched to raise funds in support of the education and internship programs of our seminarians. While we are blessed to have eight men (and possibly 13 more) studying to serve our community, this also represents a financial challenge for the diocese. To help us meet this challenge, your financial and spiritual support is vital. Historically, the number of men studying for the priesthood from our diocese has been much lower. What a source of joy to have an increase in number but it is also a financial challenge which necessitates your support. Therefore, a special collection in support of our seminarians will take place in our parishes on Sunday, November 13, 2016. As well, let us all pray for our seminarians.
