Why make a gift to the Pontifical College Josephinum?
- The Josephinum has a strong history of achieving profound results with modest resources.
- The gifts of the faithful provide for the education and formation of future priests. Your gift will support this mission for years to come.
- Although it has direct ties with the Holy See, the Josephinum is self-supporting and receives no financial support from Rome, nor is it dependent on any one diocese or religious community. The seminary is largely sustained by the generosity and prayerful support of loyal alumni and friends.
The cost to educate a Josephinum seminarian is $48,000. in 2016. Your generous giving will help us to close the gap that exits between the expenses covered by tuition for each seminarian, and the real cost of his education.
Paid by Tuition: 69%
