Ever Consider College Seminary? An endowment in the name of St. Mary Church earned about $1700 last year.  The endowment is restricted to assisting a member of St. Mary parish who is studying for the priesthood.  In the diocese of Columbus, seminarians are responsible for their own college education.  The diocese picks up the bills once a seminarian finishes college and enters into the last four years of preparation for priesthood.  Call Father Thomas if you would like to discuss priesthood.
