There are 166 young men in our list of Schuler Seminarian Fund grant recipients who have answered the call of Christ to discern the priesthood. These formative years of study present to these men challenges, moments of joy and growth, and constant surrender to the will of God.
The support of Catholic United Financial members, past and present has made possible the gifting of grants in 2019 of $55,600 to the men studying to be the future leaders and servants of the Church. We rejoice that we can serve these servants in this way.
The Schuler Seminarian Fund directly supports the men who will become the “Fishers of Men”; this was the mandate in 1998 when the fund was established in the name of the late Monsignor Richard J. Schuler, Catholic United Financial’s spiritual director of 30 years.
Last year, Catholic United celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Schuler Seminarian Fund, and that the Fund was coming close to the endowment goal of $1 million. Now, at the beginning of the Fund’s third decade, the endowment stands at $793,243, ever closer to the goal of an endowment that will continue to make gifts to these precious men who have answered the call.
Please hold these men up in prayer, support other young men who are discerning a call to the priesthood or religious life, and consider a donation to the Schuler Seminarian Fund to help us reach our endowment goal.
O God, Father of all Mercies,
Provider of a bountiful Harvest,
send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.
Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.
