St. Charles Borromeo Seminary hosted a sold-out concert performance April 19 by the Three Irish Tenors. The fundraising event was
created to support the ongoing mission of the seminary in forming priests for the future.
Archbishop Charles J. Chaput and Bishop Timothy Senior, rector of the seminary, were joined by more than 450 guests at the event that raised approximately $250,000 for the seminary.
The funds will help sustain the program of priestly formation and be applied to the seminary’s expenses including educational technology advancements, funding for academic programs, seminarian health insurance and building maintenance.
This year more than 130 young men are enrolled at the seminary as they discern God’s call and transform into compassionate priests and inspiring leaders of tomorrow’s Church.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
