Somewhere there is a young man wanting to be a priest…You can help!!! The Clerical Endowment fund, promoted by the Catholic Women of the Diocese of Austin, is a fund set up to help our bishop educate young men to the Priesthood.
What does an enrollment cost? Regular Enrollment…in which a small spiritual bouquet card is issued, is $2.00 for each person enrolled. Larger cards can be obtained for $5.00 per person. Regular enrollments are for one year.
Perpetual Enrollment…in which a nice folder is issued for life. If a living or deceased person is enrolled, these Special Enrollments are $25.00 for each person enrolled or $50.00 for a Family Enrollment. For other group enrollments it is $100.00. Contributors to the fund and all persons enrolled share in the following Spiritual Favors: The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered each month by the Bishop of Austin for the living and deceased persons enrolled and the benefactors. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered each month by the Director for all living and deceased persons enrolled and the benefactors. A remembrance of those enrolled and the benefactors by the clerical students of the diocese in their spiritual exercises. Daily remembrance of all enrolled persons and the benefactors by the Carmelite Nuns of the Monastery of Our Lady of Grace in Christoval, Texas– in their Prayers, Masses, and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Ladies from the DCCW will be available to help you with enrollments after the Masses.You may want to remember friends, neighbors, family and loved ones (living and deceased) with the gift of a CEF enrollment.
