To celebrate and honour of the Year of the Priest, we encourage you to support the Society of St. Peter the Apostle Burse Program. You and I answer the call to evangelize the world through two vital initiatives: firstly, by furthering the development of priests and religious in mission lands through spiritual and material support, and secondly, by contributing to their training in the difference countries in Africa, Asia, Americas, and Oceania.
How can you help?A Burse is a pledge of $10,000.00 to help in the education of seminarians and religious in mission countries. The capital is invested and the interest generated provides an annual income towards the education fund.
An individual, group, parish community, school club, organization may open a burse of $10,000.00 or contribute towards the completion of a burse over the course of the year(s). A burse can be opened for as little as $500.00. The Burse may be named, for example: In memory of ________________________ (name)
