Clergy & Seminarian Support

Appeal gifts help support our Diocesan seminarians during their journey to the priesthood. Their discernment and educational process toward serving as devoted priests in our parishes is assisted by the generosity of the many donors to the Appeal. Those funds also aid our retired priests living at Villa St. Joseph in Dunmore.



Seminarian Dave Pirolli of St. Jude Parish, Mountain Top, explained, “I am blessed to pursue the priesthood at Cathedral Seminary. I’ve certainly felt the effects of the Appeal and the support of the Diocese. I also benefit from the prayers and encouragement from my parish. They inspire me.”
