1st Annual Mini Golf Classic
Bishop White Seminarians Compete for
The McGivney Cup
Earlier in May, Bishop Daly, Father Ratuiste (Director of Vocations), and Father Barnett (Rector, Bishop White Seminary & Cor Christi) competed against seminarians from Bishop White and Cor Christi in the first-ever Mini Golf Classic. 9 Holes of Mini Golf were built inside of the new McGivney Hall as it nears the end of renovative construction.
The May Mini Golf Classic provides a way for us to introduce our Seminary Guild. The Seminary Guild are a group of people who commit to praying for the seminary and the seminarians and also commit to a monthly gift to the seminary.
Make sure to follow Bishop White Seminary’s website and social media on May 24th to see who took home the McGivney Cup and learn more about the Seminary Guild.
Join the Seminary Guild by making a monthly donation and committing to daily prayer.
COR CHRISTI • FORMATION for YOUNG MEN
A NEW PHASE OF FORMATION
Forming Solid Catholic Men Ready to Begin Seminary
Cor Christi is a new program that fulfills the Vatican’s new requirement for a “propaedeutic phase” as men begin seminary. Its purpose is to form strong Catholic men in the heart of Christ, so that they have a solid foundation for their journey through seminary.
Men in the new program will live in McGivney Hall, a building just one block from Bishop White Seminary. Renovations on the building are well underway, and the Cor Christi men are scheduled to move into the building in Fall 2023.
A GIFT FOR THE WHOLE CHURCH
How You Can Help
A huge effort is underway throughout Western dioceses to raise funds for this critical new program, which will be the launching point for future priests for years to come.
The building and renovations will cost $5.4 million. Will you help fund this new home for the men who are generously giving their lives to serve as priests?
A PLACE FOR WORSHIP
Update on McGivney Hall
Initial framing is completed, electricians, plumbers, and HVAC workers are almost finished installing new service, and new windows have been ordered for the entire building. We are now working hard to ensure that we have enough funds to ensure the work is completed by August in time for the next Cor Christi group.
