The Diocese of Wichita is blessed in our large number of seminarians, whose education we fully fund.

The mission of the Holy Family Special Needs Foundation is to foster the human, intellectual and spiritual growth of individuals with disabilities through education, activities, and services which help them to be active disciples of Jesus Christ in the Diocese of Wichita.

Many people prefer their donation to be used at the discretion of the bishop, allowing him to determine where the greatest need is at any particular time. Unrestricted gifts are brought before the bishop for consideration of how they would best support our diocesan ministries.
