The Military Council of Catholic Women has endowed a scholarship with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), to support the educational costs and fees of AMS Co-Sponsored Seminarians.
The Military Council of Catholic Women Endowed Co-Sponsored Seminarian Scholarship
The newly endowed scholarship will: connect women around the globe to MCCW’s effort to support seminarians; unite our financial contributions for even greater impact; and inspire future MCCW women to continue supporting our promised priests.
The Co-Sponsored Seminarian Program was created as a formal relationship between the AMS and cooperating U.S. dioceses and religious communities to encourage men to pursue priesthood in the U.S. military, and throughout the Church, by supporting vocations drawn largely from the armed forces. The annual cost of educating a single AMS co-sponsored seminarian is $15,000!
MCCW’s goal is to cover this cost for two seminarians each year. This goal is reached through generous donations to our monthly pledge program, special events, and seasonal online pledge drives. All proceeds will enable the MCCW Endowed Co-Sponsored Seminarian Scholarship to grow and impact future military chaplains.
A monthly pledge of as little as $10 can make a significant difference in the faith formation of our future priests. Individuals, families, and ministry groups can join our pledge program. To make a pledge today, click “Donate Now.”
