The ongoing economic downturn continues to drastically reduce parish donations in the already poor region of Campos. The fall of the real against the dollar has increased exports of agricultural products, raising food prices for Brazilians.
The seminary in Campos is sustained solely by donations of goods and money, mainly from collections in the parishes. While conditions are already austere by North American standards, they are now even more so. The seminary is chronically short on groceries and cleaning supplies, especially higher value items like meat, milk, cheese, and eggs.
We would like to send a regular monthly supplement of $1,000 US or more (as funds permit) to help provide more quality nutritious food (February’s supplement has been sent already thanks to the generous donations Friends of Campos received over the holidays).
Please do what you can to help support these young men who are our next generation of traditional priests! If you can make a recurring monthly donation, we appreciate that, but any donations and your prayers are most welcome.
