During the month of September, the Eparchy of Edmonton conducts its annual Vocations and Seminary Collection.

“It takes a whole village to raise a child.” It likewise takes the support of the whole Church to form a deacon, priest, religious, monastic and lay member for ministry in the Church. It also takes our support to offer on-going education and formation for those already in sacred orders or involved in lay ministry.

The faithful can acknowledge the role they play in nurturing vocations by offering their financial support to help defray such expenses as formation programs, retreats, conferences, seminars, tuition, books, and room and board.

Studying for the priesthood this year, on behalf of the Eparchy Edmonton are:

  • Volodymyr Babiak (Bachelor of Arts in Catholic Studies, Newman Theological College, Edmonton);

· John Lukey (Diaconate Formation, Newman Theological College).

  • Orion Wiebe (Theology Studies, Newman Theological College); and

  • John Vizza (Theology Studies, Newman Theological College).

The suggested donation amount is $25.00 per family.

Thank you for your generosity! May God bless you and your families!

Note: Ensure to select “Vocations and Seminary” under “Fund” in the donation form to have your donation directed to our eparchial vocations.
