Education of Seminarians

This post is also available in: Spanish

Each year, the largest allocation made from the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries is made directly in support of those men who are considering a life of ordained service to the Diocese of Dallas.



Continued support of the diocesan annual campaign ensures that, through the generous ministry of our ordained clergy, members of our diocesan family will continue to engage our Lord in a dynamic faith community.

The funds donated through Dallas Bishop’s Appeal help to provide  for the education of seminarians in the following ways:

  • Holy Trinity Seminary: In cooperation with the University of Dallas, seminarians receive intellectual and spiritual formation essential to their theological studies.
  • Redemptoris Seminary: Offers studies in theology necessary for priestly formation.

Please watch the video below to hear the story of one priest whose life was changed due to support from funds raised during the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.
