Support for Seminarian
The Knights of Columbus provide seminarian support through what is known as Refund Support for Vocations Program (RSVP). With RSVP, we raise funds to reimburse our seminarians as they are attending their formal religious vocation training. Our Brother Richard Rivera is a seminarian enrolled at Mundelein Seminary.
We will have raffles to raise funds. Brother Knights, their family, and parishioners have donated special items for the raffles this year.
