Fostering Tomorrow's Vocations in Our Country's Heartland
In his summer newsletter, Fr. Wegner calls to attention the needs of Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy in Minnesota, which is exceeding its capacity.
While the SSPX was formed - and remains - a priestly society, with its emphasis on the retention of the traditional Catholic priesthood and the Mass, the Archbishop realized in the early days that without supporting schools, the source of vocations would suffer greatly.
The US District of the Society of St. Pius X supports 27 schools in the United States, one among them Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy in Oak Grove, Minnesota. Fr. Wegner writes:
Never divorced from the Faith, schools like Immaculate Heart plant the seeds of Christ’s vocational harvest, thus ensuring that Catholic Tradition continues forward for another generation. For instance, Immaculate Heart is blessed with the privilege of having five graduates who have entered clerical and religious life: three priests, one brother, and one seminarian. Additionally, four Academy graduates have returned to the school as teachers with two more serving in other Catholic schools."
For those who are able, a donation to this academy will help support not only the maintenance of Catholic education, but provide a source of future religious vocations.
