Appeal for funds for a Seminarian


Dear Friends,

There is a young seminarian well known to me studying in a the Seminary of St. Philip Neri of the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest in Gricigliano, Italy. As one might expect, he comes from a home-schooled family of eight children. He is well-respected by the seminary and is doing well in his courses. He is known to me personally as is his family. He is being supported by many people in his studies but it is not enough. He prays daily at Mass for all of his benefactors.

I am going to be right up front. 

Funds are needed to aid in the continuing of his formation for his tuition. The goal is to raise $10,000 in Canadian funds by Christmas. This will cover all of his needs this year and get him started on next year.

I can personally attest to this young man and his family.

If you are in Canada, you can make a donation to the Toronto Traditional Mass Society and a grant will be sent directly to support him at 100% of your donation for which you will receive a tax receipt for 2013. Outside of Canada, the receipt may apply.

You may also make the donation directly here through Canada Helps.

You may also donate by cheque with a note Seminarian JH and mail a contribution to:

Toronto Traditional Mass Society
3701 Lakeshore Boulevard West
STATION LONG BRANCH
P.O. Box 48577
Toronto, Ontario
M8W 4Y6 

For more information, please write to me at

God bless you.

Would this (click here) be an optimum route to make a donation?

I completely forgot about "Canada Helps." Someone sent us a donation a number of months ago through them. I will write them to update our profile with a donor designation line "Seminarian JH" but until I do, confirm it with me directly by email at voxcantoris@rogers.com

Thank you and God bless.
