Paying It Forward to Help our Seminarians

“I pray for vocations every day,” shared Mary Ann Parie before she passed away last fall.  “We need priests.  I don’t want money to be the barrier for them to enter the seminary.”

Mary Ann created the Msgr. Joseph Marx and Rev. Henry J. Arens Endowment for Seminarians.  Through this fund she supports the vocation to the priesthood and ensures future generations of Catholics have the opportunity to attend Mass and receive the Sacraments.
