Support for Seminarians

In 2016, the North Dakota Knights of Columbus donated $88,200 to the RSVP program. Thank you to all the councils, assemblies, and Foundation. What a year!

Through the Knights of Columbus Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP), councils, assemblies and Squires circles “adopt” one or more seminarians or postulants and provide them with financial assistance and moral support.

RSVP money is used by seminarians and those in religious formation for tuition and books, car insurance and maintenance, travel during vacations, emergency expenditures and other living expenses.

Last year, financial help from 3,224 councils, assemblies and circles to future priests, sisters and brothers, exceeded $3.7 million. Since 1981, the Order has provided more than $60 million in aid through RSVP, helping more than 91,600 men and women follow their vocations.
