Founded by a parish priest, the Knights of Columbus has always worked hard to encourage young men and women to consider God’s call to service in the priesthood or religious life.

Under the motto “Keep the Faith Alive,” the Order’s vocations initiative has a number of programs based on prayer and designed to reach the hearts and minds of young people, as well as to provide financial support during their years of seminary training or religious formation.

Priests are needed to offer Mass to keep Christ’s presence, his Real Presence, living and active in the world. Without a priest, there is no Mass and no Eucharist. The need for priests could not be clearer, or more urgent.

Through the Knights of Columbus Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP), Councils “adopt” local seminarians and provide them with financial assistance and moral support.

Seminarians supported by our Council include:

– Simon Ortiz

– David Wilmowski

Please keep our Church’s seminarians in your prayers as they continue their journey of faith.
