As Piarist priests, who take a vow of poverty, we work in a relatively small Province. We are blessed to see our religious order grow and to have so many young men express an interest in a Piarist vocation. However, as a Province, we cannot cover the expenses of our various ministries and our growing seminarian population without the generous support of our benefactors. It is through the financial partnership of our benefactors that a strong and continued Piarist presence in our schools, parishes and missions will continue and flourish.
- Currently 12 seminarians
- Majority of seminarians come from difficult economic and educational backgrounds
- Average cost for one seminarian is $15,000 per year
- Average time from start to ordination is 10 years
- Seminarian expenses account for more than 50% of our budget
