    HOW WILL YOUR DONATIONS HELP?
    Fundraising directly affects the work of the Office of Vocations in the Diocese of Arlington. Funds will assist those discerning a vocation to priesthood and those who are in seminary formation. The Diocese provides each seminarian with an education, housing and food, yet other unexpected expenses occur.  Your donations will help supplement discernment programs as well as pay for seminarian expenses not normally covered by the Diocese.
