Good Shepherd Sunday Seminarian Collection

April 24-25, 2021

Good Shepherd SundayOn the Fourth Sunday of Easter, Good Shepherd Sunday, in the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep.” The Diocese of Fort Worth is blessed to have 29 seminarians in various stages of the thorough discernment and formation journey. In imitation of Jesus Christ, they will lay down their lives for their sheep. For these men, the Diocese of Fort Worth is committed to paying for all of the costs associated with their formation and education. In this way, they can commit to prayer and formation during their time in seminary, a period which can span seven and nine years and cost $50,000 annually for each of the men.
