Your participation supports…

Through this event you support the high expenses of maintaining our formation houses, which is where our brothers who are in basic formation live and study. Our brothers are guided by formation directors who live there and are in charge of running the community.

Like any family, we have ordinary expenses that we have to pay such as food, electricity, water, telephone, health insurance, and car insurance and maintenance of our houses. But we also have very significant regular expenses, which are the tuition of the brothers who are attending seminary/school and other formation related experiences or workshops.

Tuition alone for one brother is about $25,000 each year. That’s why we depend on the generosity of our friends and benefactors, and the funds we raise at events like this among other fundraising activities.

This event specifically benefits the MSpS community of Mount Angel.

We are ever grateful for our benefactors and friends who partner in our ministry to make these events happen. As well as all those who purchase a ticket and support our events. Thank you for your generosity!
