The Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP) is the primary program through which Knights of Columbus councils participate in an organized manner in supporting seminarians throughout the Order.  Since 1981 nearly $30 million has been given to needy seminarians.  Our council has pledged to donate $500 each for three seminarians identified below.  In addition, we are encouraged to provide moral support and prayer for these young men.  In this way, besides providing financial support, RSVP creates bonds of friendship between Knights and future priests, many of whom will join the Order and become chaplains as a result.
            I encourage you to use the contact information provided and write to the Seminarians , expressing your support for their vocations.  We will be sending them each $250 now and again in the spring in addition to praying for them as a council.
Please let me know if you are making contact and I will do the same for you.
