As Fall is beginning, we are thinking Golf! Time to tee up and drive for the 2018 Archbishop’s Golf Tournament for seminarian formation.
Our parishes thrive when there is a resident priest. Currently there are 10 parishes and missions in the Archdiocese that do not have a resident priest, and some of our priests are about to retire. Our Catholic faith community is so much stronger when the sacraments are regularly available – baptizing our babies, providing reconciliation and First Holy Communion for our children, serving as role models for our youth and marrying our young and newly old couples. Having a priest to assist in difficult and joyous times makes our families and local church stronger. Faith happens in our parishes and missions, and it is more robust and generational when there is a priest to foster that faith each day. Seminarian formation will lead to more ordained diocesan priests in our parishes and missions nurturing faith and families.
Please join us in the 2018 Archbishop’s Golf Tournament to fund seminarian formation. We would like you to consider becoming a Sponsor. The 2018 Golf Tournament Sponsorship Opportunities form provides the various sponsor levels available. By assisting to underwrite the costs of the tournament, you assist us to raise more money in support of our future priests. And, if you are a golfer, there are VIP player spots for many of the sponsor levels. We would love to have you with us, but even if you don’t play golf, any donation your organization can make to our tournament is greatly appreciated.
Can we count on your help this year to fund seminarian formation and to keep building the pillars of our Local Church?
