Seminarian Circle members are parishioners of the Archdiocese of Anchorage who want to help fund seminarian formation. Various liturgies and events provide the opportunity to share in spiritual development and build relationships with each other and our future priests.
The Future of Our Church
We continue to have young men courageously say “yes” to God’s call. These men in discernment are committed to serve those in need and to be Christ’s presence in our parishes and faith communities.
How are funds used?
Contributions are used to support the men studying for the priesthood, today and in the future. Each year of formation costs over $50,000 for one seminarian in our Archdiocese. Support for the Seminarian Formation Fund is made possible through the support of Seminarian Circle Members, and all Catholics.
What is required to become a member?
Make a minimum annual contribution of $1,000 renewable each year. Gifts may also be made annually, twice a year, or quarterly, and automatic payments can be set up to do so.
Contributions can be made at the annual Archbishop’s Golf Tournament for Seminarian Formation, the Seminarian Night Dinner and Fundraiser, at Seminarian Circle events, or any time throughout the year.
Benefits of Becoming a Seminarian Circle Member
Seminarian Circle members will get the opportunity to get to know our seminarians because you are investing in the future of our Church, and you are the key to that future by helping to fund their formation.
Members are also invited to attend seminarian formation milestone events. Throughout the year, members are invited to gather with the Archbishop for special liturgies and receptions.
