Building a culture
of vocations in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe
Join us in financially supporting men discerning the priesthood.
Directly impact the future of the Church.
The Archdiocese of Santa Fe faces a critical shortage of priests.
Without your support, our community risks losing the spiritual guidance, leadership, and sacramental availability which are essential to our Catholic faith.
A critical moment.
In the coming 15 years, 46 priests in our Archdiocese are set to retire, creating an unprecedented challenge.
Today, there are plenty of reasons that a young man might hesitate to discern his calling to the priesthood. At CCRV, we believe that having enough money to support himself and his education should never be one of those reasons.
CCRV, established in 2019, is dedicated to addressing these vital needs by supporting seminarians on their journey to priesthood.
Through your generous contributions of $50 per month, we can offer increased stipends to seminarians, alleviating their financial burdens and fostering a thriving culture of vocations.
Once we reach our goal of 100 monthly donors at this level, we will shift our focus from bolstering our current programs to meeting other needs of the Office of Vocations.
Your impact. Our mission.
Since its inception in 2019, the Catholic Club for Religious Vocations (CCRV) has been at the forefront of nurturing the future of our Church, beginning with crucial financial support for seminarians in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Our journey started with providing stipends to ease the living expenses of seminarians, but our vision has grown alongside the needs of our community.
Today, CCRV is evolving beyond financial aid, embarking on a mission to holistically support the Office of Vocations.
We are now actively engaged in fostering a vibrant culture of vocations that encompasses not only priesthood but also religious life and Holy Matrimony. Our expanded role includes funding innovative programs and initiatives that encourage vocational discernment at all levels of the community.
From supporting retreats and discernment workshops to sponsoring vocational awareness events and educational resources, CCRV is committed to nurturing a dynamic environment where every individual is inspired to explore and embrace their calling.
This broader approach reflects our deep commitment to not only meet immediate needs but also to lay a foundation for a spiritually rich future for the Church, benefitting clergy, religious, and lay people alike.
By collaborating closely with the Office of Vocations, we aim to create a sustainable and impactful legacy, ensuring that the Archdiocese of Santa Fe remains a beacon of faith and leadership for generations to come.
