Message from Our Archbishop

Dear Friends in Christ,

With great joy and appreciation I give thanks to God for your prayers and support of the Seminary Burse Fund of the Archdiocese of Miami. Today I invite you to continue your financial support, which directly provides for the formation of those whom God is calling to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ.

Recently, during the World Day Prayer for Vocations, Pope Francis invited us to continue praying for men and women willing to give their lives to Christ and His Church. The Holy Father reminded us that, "vocations are born in prayer and from prayer; and only through prayer, can they persevere and bear fruit." As a result of your prayers, more men are answering God's call to the Priesthood. This year, we are blessed that St. John Vianney College Seminary, located right here in the Archdiocese of Miami, will have more than eighty seminarians discerning God's call and Preparing to serve His Church.

Your contribution to the annual Seminary Burse Fund collection assists us in continuing and safeguarding that our seminarians, the future priests of your parish, receive the best formation possible. II It is my hope that all our prayers, united to those of St. John Vianney, patron of priests, may bring about many holy men willing to serve the Church seeking the salvation of all souls.

For this reason, I especially, encourage you to support the Seminary Burse Fund of the Archdiocese of Miami (collections will be after every mass on the weekend of August 8/9). Your generosity is a reminder of God's love for His children. Thank you, and may you receive the abundant blessings of the Lord bestowed upon you and your loved ones. With personal best wishes, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend
Archbishop of Miami
