Blessings Begin Here | Thank Your Priest

Posted on November 18, 2021

Each year we designate the week before Thanksgiving for our Blessings Begin Here campaign, a time to recognize the beautiful ministry of our alumni priests and the vital need for the support of our generous donors to ensure that we can continue forming seminarians to answer the call.

How has a priest been a blessing in your life?

Send us a photo of you with the priest, or write the priest’s full name on a piece of paper and take a selfie with it, as seen below. Send the photo to socialmedia@usml.edu with the subject line: “Thank a Priest.” Please include Father’s full name (if you know how to spell it,) and note which parish he is serving now in the e-mail body itself. We will post the photo here, so please share this page with your social media channels and let your priest know about it, too!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Centennial Kickoff Event and said “thank you” to their priests! Watch the video and browse the photos below for more heartfelt messages to the blessings that are our priests.

Make a gift today and it will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor for our Giving Tuesday and Blessings Begin Here campaign! Thank you for helping us reach our $50,000 goal to support your future parish priests.
