#GivingTuesday at Saint John's Seminary



Today is Giving Tuesday – a day of philanthropy, focused on uniting folks across the globe to give back, during a holiday season that can easily be overwhelmed with material gifts and possessions. Here at Saint John’s Seminary, we are busily preparing for the busy end of another semester, while simultaneously preparing our hearts for the Advent season and birth of our Lord.

I know what you may be thinking. Made-up holidays like “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” are just a lot of hype, it’s true. And so too you may think is  “Giving Tuesday”. While this may be partially the case, this is a hype we can get behind: supporting Saint John's Seminary, a vibrant community of impassioned men  - your future parish priests! - who are constantly praying for you, for one another, and to become better each and every day on their journeys towards ordination.  

Therefore, I am asking if you would please consider making a gift to the SJS Annual Fund today, on Giving Tuesday. Our goal is to raise $2,500 to make some improvements to seminarian living spaces on this day. Even a gift of $5 will make a difference to these earnest and prayerful men.  

To make your gift, please visit www.sjsboston.org/givingtuesday. 
(On the online giving form, choose “Other” as your designation, and write in “Giving Tuesday”.)

Thank you from all of us at Saint John’s Seminary!
