St. Philip Neri Seminary Society

The St. Philip Neri Seminary Society was established in an effort to obtain spiritual and monetary support for the seminarians studying with the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. The Society has developed two programs with these goals in mind: the Spiritual adoption program and the monetary Benefactor program.

The Spiritual adoption program works to obtain prayers and spiritual alms for our Seminarians who are studying for the priesthood in Gricigliano, Italy.  By providing the Society with your name, address and email (if you wish) we will assign a Seminarian to you. You will receive a “thank-you” letter with a picture of your adopted seminarian and a little bit about him. These young men need our support and be assured that these prayers are most important during this time of priestly formation.

The monetary Benefactor program is distinct from the spiritual adoption program and works to obtain funds to cover the cost of the American seminarians’ tuition. Despite their best fundraising efforts, some seminarians are unable to afford the yearly cost of tuition at the seminary.

No vocation should suffer due to monetary difficulties, which is why we look to generous benefactors to support our Priests of tomorrow. By filling out a pledge card  you can choose to support a seminarian for one day or for an entire year. You will also have the option of a payment plan to make monthly, quarterly or annual payments. One time donations are also greatly appreciated.

If you have any further questions, please contact the American headquarters of the Institute of Christ the King at (773) 363-7409.
