WSS 20th Anniversary

Worldwide Seminarian Support was founded 22 years ago with the mission to help fund those following the calling to the Priesthood. We celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2013, and are eager to continue our apostolate.

Funding Vocations

Worldwide Seminarian Support's mission is to provide financial assistance for the abundance of priestly vocations around the world through the donations of the faithful laity of the Catholic Church.

50+ Priests Funded

Over the past 20+ years, we've helped support the education of over 50 men into the Priesthood through generous donations from people like you. With your help, we can continue to change the world, one Priest at a time.

Seven Reasons to Support a Seminarian:
1. Baptism
2. Reconciliation
3. Eucharist
4. Confirmation
5. Anointing of the Sick
6. Holy Matrimony
7. Holy Orders

The Faithful 1000 program is a new broader donor base initiative introduced by WSS to fund 100 seminarians in Africa and India during our 20th anniversary year. With each supporter contributing $30 each month for one year we will be able to provide support for one hundred seminarians. Each faithful 1000 member will be graced by the daily prayers of the seminarians they support, along with intentions during each of the masses they celebrate once they become priests.

The reasons are clear! Your donation can bring men, women, and children to Christ worldwide through the infinite graces granted in the sacraments of His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

You can make a huge impact and never even leave your living room! By your contribution to Worldwide Seminarian Support. you can help to raise up holy priests to bring the seven Sacraments and salvation to Catholics around the world.


Please remember to pray for our seminarians through their journey to the Priesthood. Daily, your seminarians are praying for you, their special benefactor. When your supported seminarians are an ordained Catholic Priest you will be remembered at every Holy Catholic mass they celebrate!

Faithful 1000 donors may contribute by check or by automatic withdrawal from your debit or credit card account. Donation options are monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually. We can also send out reminders for your convenience.

Each Faithful 1000 chapter will have two special events per year to recognize our donors and raise awareness of the need for vocations. Past events have included special Masses, visits by ALCP leadership and hosted brunches. Future events will be listed on our website. Faithful 1000 members will also receive updates on the seminarians via e-mail, newsletter, ordination announcements and invitations.

Donors will have a list of their current seminarians, and the seminarians will have a list of these donors and their particular prayer requests. The priests at the seminary will say special Masses to celebrate the birthdays of all of our Faithful 1000 donors and their immediate families.

Why Support a Seminarian?

The Faithful 1000

Impacting Lives

Not only do we believe in priestly education, but religious education made available to all who are open to hearing Christ's calling. We co-sponsor projects in third world communities to help assist the Catholic Church evangelize through Catholic education and necessary construction projects. These projects include wells for clean water, seminaries, and schools.

Support Future Faith

The need for apostolic funding is enormous in many countries with booming vocations. God is calling so many men to this great, noble, and holy vocation but the funding needed is not always available. Your support not only helps those seminarians become priests, but it helps their communities from all their good works.
