Diocesan Priests for Our Future Campaign


Over the past several years, our diocese has been blessed by the Holy Spirit with a tremendous growth in vocations to the priesthood. The number of seminarians studying to serve us as priests in the Diocese of Madison has grown from 6 in 2004 to 33 today. We have prayed fervently for these seminarians and God is generously answering our prayers.

This tremendous increase, however, has challenged our traditional funding sources far beyond their capacity. In response, the first diocesan-wide capital campaign in more than 50 years was launched in Spring 2014. The campaign seeks to raise $30,000,000, pledged over a five year period, to establish a permanent endowment fund whose earnings will be restricted to supporting the recruitment, education and formation of future priests for the Diocese of Madison.

Every family in our diocese will be invited to prayerfully consider a pledge in support of this campaign. Our parish has been asked to raise $295,000. In the coming weeks, you will be contacted about the campaign and invited to consider your own response. Please do not make a decision until you have been contacted and learned all the details about this historic undertaking. If you would be willing to volunteer to share the vision of this campaign please contact Hayley Levy at .
