Vocations: The Office of Vocations seeks to nurture the call of men to the priesthood and women to consecrated life by reaching out to those who may be called by the Holy Spirit.
Seminarians: The Diocese of Charleston supports the formation of 25 seminarians and discerners at five different seminaries as well as other discerners. The Diocese is responsible for the cost of their education and formation, which averages $42,000 per year, per seminarian. We also provide a measure of support to those studying through seminarian orders.
Retired Priests: The priests of our diocese have given a lifetime of service and sacrifice to our diocesan family. We currently provide monthly retirement pensions and healthcare support to 29 priests; that number is projected to rise to 30 by 2030. Many of our retired priests continue to serve in parish ministries throughout our diocese.
