Silent Auction - Raising Monies for Our Seminarians

Once again, we will conduct our Silent Auction at our MCCW Regional Retreat! Donations help to support our Seminarians. Please be generous and open your hearts. Our monetary goal for 2015 is to raise upwards of $8,000.00 - $10,000. Due to your generous donations at our 'Totus Tuus and Living Mercy Retreats' we held in 2015 we raised over $8,000.00 of our $10,000 goal !!!! Let us set another goal of $10,000 goal for our upcoming 'Echoing the Gifts of the Holy Spirit' Retreat to be held October 20-23, 2016 at Schoenstatt


During each retreat we ask for auction and chance items from individuals and chapel groups. Be creative and have fun coming up with unique ideas for your donation(s)! Parishioners, family members and neighbors may also donate items through you. Together let us put the word out to each of our ‘Circle of Friends’ that they too can support our Seminarians. Please ask them to write a check to MCCW Worldwide and to write at the bottom left of their checks: Seminarian Fund. Credit Card Donations may also be made at mccwinternational.org  Should you, a friend or family member wish to make the donation on line please write in the comment box: Seminarian Fund-MCCW Europe Donation.
