Support Our Youth Seminary Programs
Adopt a Seminarian
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. This is the most important project of the Province. Over the last twenty years the Province cost for seminarians is four million dollars.
House of Formation of St. Joseph Calasanz
In 2013, we purchased our own House of Formation in Ponce, PR. The House of Formation of St. Joseph Calasanz serves as a residence for our men, who are studying philosophy and education at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico.
