The name “Holy Family Fund” represents the important and beautiful relationship between the priesthood and family life. The seed of Jesus’ own priestly vocation was nurtured in the context of the Holy Family. We want to encourage all families to be the seedbed of vocations, where young men and women are taught to listen to and respond to God’s call.

This Fund addresses both immediate and long-term needs of the seminary. Each year, the seminary will receive a distribution from the Holy Family Fund in an amount between 5% and 10% of the rolling average of the market value of the fund from the prior twelve quarters. This is a higher percentage than what is expected from a typical endowment. The continual generosity of donors will sustain this fund for the long-term benefit of the seminary.

Please consider The Holy Family Fund and Kenrick-Glennon Seminary in your charitable giving plans. Your gift will provide stable support to the seminary each year for funding current operations and preserve the long-term value of the Fund to support future generations of seminarians.
