Vocations: Make a donation to fund vocations

The Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations is an organization that assists young men and women who are otherwise qualified and willing to pursue religious or priestly vocations, but are prevented from doing so by their student loans.

Since the summer of 2004, they have helped 31 young men and women pursue their formation in the religious life. It does this by assisting them in paying off their student loans. The average college loan debt today is over $25,000, and most graduates take at least a decade to pay it off.

Please consider making a (tax-deductible) donation. Hundreds, if not thousands, of young men and women stand ready to answer the call, if only we help to remove the one obstacle that stands in their way: college debt. Help put an end to a vocations crisis by assisting those who have heard God's call.
