St. Frances Cabrini

    "We must pray without tiring, for the salvation of mankind does not depend on material success; nor on sciences that cloud the intellect. Neither does it depend on arms and human industries, but on Jesus alone. "

    Through our Vocations Support Program, the Knights of Columbus demonstrates its unwaivering support for the Priesthood at its earliest stage. Having taken the first step by entering seminary, our Order attempts to support these young men by offering financial, moral and spiritual assistance.

    Adhering to the intent of our Supreme Council, we 'adopt' our seminarians and accept the challenge to maintain our support through their years of study. God willing, we will be in attendance at their Mass of Ordination.

    Beginning July 1, 2009, under the direction of Grand Knight Dennis Griffin and with the guidance of Church Activities Director, William Waugh, our Council reactivated the Vocations Support Program. Within a few short months, we adopted Nicholas Fernandez, our first seminarian. As of September 2013, our ministry has expanded to seven seminarians!

    In June, 2011, our new partnership began supporting Mary Theresa Naccarato, a postulant of the Sisters of the Presentation. Mary's journey is ongoing and we look forward to her final profession of vows.
