Sponsor a Seminarian

The Sangre de Cristo Parish is hosting 13 seminarians for a one year novitiate program.  The Novitiate Year is an intense year of prayer and discernment in which seminarians are removed from the distractions and hectic pace of full-time work or study so that they can focus on deepening their prayer life.

Five of these men are coming to us from Nigeria and eight are coming to us from Mexico.  They will live with Father Heriberto in the Rectory as they prepare for their studies for the Priesthood.  Help us provide for the needs of these young men who desire to serve the Lord.  Sponsorship can take many forms.  You can pray daily for all of our novitiates or choose to pray intensely for one.  You can write letters/notes of support.  You can use our online giving tool found on our Online Giving link or you can contact the Parish Office to set up a donation.  (And remember to pray for Father Heriberto too — this is a huge responsibility he has undertaken.)

Our novitiates are Kevin Chinonye Okafor, Miguel Enrique Alvarado, Hector del Rio Pina, Mbata Peter Igbang, Octavio Serrano Estrada, Orlando Fabricio Quiroz Bustos, Victor Mendez Cano, David Arroyo Alonso, Okpalaobi Justin Chimezie, Okwudiba Martin Okwukwe, Julian Kenechukwu, Mariano Pacheco Marin and Juan Miguel Tavares.
