Sponsor a Seminarian

In his message for the 53rd World Day of Prayer for Vocations, Pope Francis said, “I urge all the faithful to assume their responsibility for the care and discernment of vocations.” CARITAS offers you an opportunity to make a difference in the global church, to support the seminary education of young men in Uganda who have already received the call to priesthood and help secure the stability of the Catholic church in Uganda. 

Help Those Who Dedicate Their Lives

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; If service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching…” Romans 12:6-7

CARITAS For Children partners with indigenous groups of men and women religious for all of their programs in all of the locations where CARITAS is found. Presently CARITAS is working with men and women religious located in Africa, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. While it is extremely beneficial to work with Program Partners who are indigenous to the countries where CARITAS For Children exists, it also presents a challenge in that these countries provide little financial support for the education of the members of Religious Orders, and therefore they must look outside of their own country for ways to help them in their own personnel development. As a commitment to its partners, CARITAS For Children offers support to educate their women religious to empower these women to qualify for positions of leadership and advancements in schools, hospitals, administrative services, community and business development throughout the countries where they live and serve the children supported by CARITAS For Children. This program has expanded to support vocations to the priesthood among young Ugandan men.
