What is Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP)? The Knights of Columbus stands in solidarity with our priests and religious! Through the Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP), council and parish families raise funds to support seminarians in their area.
What are the funds used for? RSVP is used by seminarians and those in religious formation to cover needs such as books, car insurance / maintenance, emergency expenditures and other living expenses.
What kind of moral support is given? Knights of Columbus councils are called to aid their “adopted” seminarians and postulants with moral and emotional support as well as with prayers for their vocation and vocations throughout the church. This element is central to RSVP. Knights of Columbus councils provide support in a variety of ways including writing letters and birthday cards to their seminarian or religious postulant, sponsoring dinners to support them, and inviting them to fraternal events.
For any other information about our seminarians please contact our Vocations Chairman George Pellechia.
