Because you can help form the hearts and minds of the next generation!
Your gifts ensure that our students will continue to have access to the finest Catholic education, preparing them to engage the culture and “rebuild the Church” as business leaders, catechists, doctors, lawyers, politicians, mothers and fathers, priests and religious.
Because you can help a Church crying out for leaders and vocations!
With the largest Priestly Discernment Program in the country, Franciscan University provides pre-seminary formation for nearly 6O young men a year who are seriously discerning the priesthood.
