I am very grateful for your support during my seminary journey. My time at the Seminary so far has enabled me to enter more deeply in God’s profound Love; a Love I hope to share in service of others
— Adam Kirkeby
Thank you for your prayers and financial support. As seminarians we are very blessed to be able to study in depth the treasures of our faith, which we in turn want to give to the people of God. God always surpasses us, but never leaves us alone
— Matthew Gibson
In the Seminary, I have been blessed with the prayer and support of others. My discernment continually demands me to surrender, and dive deeper in prayer. Searching for the Father’s love is the greatest adventure. Thank you for your support in our journey
— Isaac Fransen
