The challenges facing Christians today keenly felt by the 12 young men currently preparing for ordination to the priesthood in the seminary in Karaganda – the only Catholic seminary in the country. At present there are barely 100 Catholic priests for the entire country, serving in the four dioceses of Kazakhstan. Clearly, this is far too few in number to serve the widely scattered Catholic population in this vast land.
The seminary has asked our help in providing theological books for the seminary, so that these future priests can enjoy a solid and rounded formation. Will you help today?
“It's such a beautiful witness, being a nun. Because you are so fully committed to God, you help make His presence felt by the community where you do your daily work. And thus you also bring God’s Blessing upon the place and people you are with”. Sr. Anna Klipatska, Congregation of Little Sisters of Mary’s Immaculate Heart, Kiev
