Seminarian Education Endowment
Thanks to the generosity of parishioners like you, the Diocese of Wichita has the long-established practice of paying the tuition, room and board for men studying for the priesthood in our Diocese.
Our financial support gives a young man the freedom to go into the seminary (and to leave if he feels called to step out) without worrying about costs.
During the past 15 years, priestly vocations in the Diocese of Wichita have steadily climbed. With an influx of seminarians, we have been challenged to provide room, board and tuition for the men of our diocese who may give the rest of their lives in service to us.
Learn how you can help support our future priests.

“It is hard to describe my feelings about the prayers and financial support that the people of Wichita so generously provided while I was studying to be a priest. The diocese has always felt like a family: kind, generous and supportive. I am very proud of my family. If it had not been for their support, both spiritual and financial, I may never have known the great joy that I know today, in serving them and my Lord as a priest. For that, I will be forever grateful.”
Rev. Chad Arnold, ordained May 2010
