Fund raiser for a Toronto Seminarian

A wonderful young man, whom I know, is studying for the priesthood. The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE Toronto has organized a fund raising campaign. Will you help? Do you know someone who will? 

Full details can be read here. The following is a brief part of an open letter written regarding this campaign. 


Last year, The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNAVOCE TORONTO had a campaign to raise funds for a young man from the Archdiocese of Toronto, Joseph Heppelle. Joseph is studying for the holy priesthood with the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest at their Seminary of St. Philip Neri at Gricigiliano, Italy. In the spring, Joseph was ordained into the Minor Orders of Porter and Lector.

We are pleased to announce our 2014 campaign for Joseph, the eldest son of eight children from a wonderful Catholic and musically-talented family.

Our goal is $20,000, double that of last year's goal of $10,000 which we able to exceed, thanks to you.

It was so edifying to see the donations come in, even from as far away as Australia (Thank you Father!!!).

I know Joseph personally, his father and mother and his whole family. They are wonderful people and I personally attest to his faith and his dedication to his studies and seminary life.

Will you help us support Joseph?
