Good Shepherd Collection to Support Vocations 

Thank your for the tremendous response to the Good Shepherd Sunday Collection to support vocations in the Diocese of Pueblo. These donations will help our young men as they prepare to answer God’s call to a journey of ministry in our diocese. All funds collected will be used to grow the Seminarian Burse Endowment fund which provides long-term support for the formation and education of seminarians. Currently, the Diocese of Pueblo is sponsoring four men who are studying for the priesthood in several locations throughout the United States. The average cost of seminary study is $25,000/semester per student. May the Holy Spirit bless and guide them as they answer the call to serve and minister to God’s people.

I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding.” Jer 3:15 

Donations to this fund are accepted year round. To donate online, please select Seminary Burse in the dropdown box under: Use my donation to support. Please issues checks to the Catholic Foundation, as it stewards the Seminarian Burse Endowment fund. When writing a check, include a notation in the memo line directing your gift to vocations. Again, thank you for the outpouring of support!

The Hidden Treasure of the Diocese—The Franciscan Capuchin Poor Clare Sisters

Few know that in our midst is a group of religious sisters who have dedicated their lives to cloistered prayer. The Poor Clare sisters have lived in and served our diocese for over 21 years, living in “temporary housing” in the historic Grove section of Pueblo.

Recently the Catholic Diocese of Pueblo has been blessed with the opportunity to help provide a more appropriate facility for these around-the-clock prayer warriors who have been living in an outdated building for years without complaint. These women have dedicated their lives to prayer on behalf of our diocese and now the time has come to offer them a sacred space worthy of their charism.

Please help construct a new home for the Poor Clares by contributing to the Poor Clare Monastery Building fund and help the sisters realize this worthwhile endeavor. To donate, scroll down and select “Poor Clare Monastery Fund” in the “Use my donation to support” drop down bar.
