        Through a grant partnership with Catholic Extension, the Diocese of Tulsa now has an exciting opportunity to strengthen our seminarian formation program. The diocese has been challenged to raise $150,000 in the 2014 calendar year. If we are successful, Catholic Extension has pledged to add $50,000 to that amount. Those monies – potentially in excess of $200,000 – would benefit the existing Seminarian Trust Fund, which has financed the formation of most of priests in service to the diocese today.
