Appeal for financial sponsorship for Seminarian

Friends, with two donations this morning of $3,200.00 we are nearing our goal of $10,000 but still short by $3675

Could you spare $10, $20 or $50 or $100 to help us fund this man's seminary education for the rest of this year?

The end of the year is coming and your tax receipt is waiting. Thank you and God bless you. Vox

A few months ago, the readers of this blog raised over $8000.00 to build a house for a Deacon's impoverished parents in India. He will be ordained to the priesthood on December 30 for the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church in India. 

I am writing this post with another appeal for a Abbé Joseph Heppelle, a seminarian from the Archdiocese of Toronto studying at the Seminary of St. Philip Neri in Gricigliano, Tuscany, Italy. This is the main seminary of the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest. 

I've know Abbé Heppelle for a number of years and his family. He is the eldest of eight home-schooled musically-gifted children. He is now an Acolyte and will, God-willing, be ordained to the Subdiaconate next spring.

I am reprinting below an appeal from the Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE TORONTO. If you are able to send financial support, there is an online charity called CanadaHelps that will receive the donation and provide you with a Canadian charitable tax receipt. 


You can also donate directly by mailing a donation to:

Toronto Traditional Mass Society-Una Voce Toronto
3701 Lakeshore Boulevard West
P.O. Box 48577
Toronto, Ontario M8W 4Y6

A tax-receipt will be issued in that case by the Society.

Thank you for your consideration.

Seminarian Fundraising Campaign for Abbé Joseph Heppelle

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - Una Voce Toronto is established to promote the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, (the Traditional Catholic Latin Mass) and Gregorian chant in the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Abbé Joseph Heppelle is the eldest of eight from a home-schooled family here in the Archdiocese. He grew up serving and singing the chant for the Traditional Roman Liturgy. He is studying for the Catholic priesthood at the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest Seminary of St. Philip Neri in Gricigliano, Italy. Abbé Heppelle is now an Acolyte and will, God-willing, be ordained to the Subdiaconate in the spring of 2016.

This is the third year now that we have assisted in fundraising for Abbé Heppelle. Seminary cost is expensive as you can imagine and challenging in that all his classes are in French and Italian.

Please give consideration to donating for this young-man's education as he prepares to serve Jesus Christ, Sovereign Priest and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and the community of faithful which belong to Her.

Donations through CanadaHelps are tax-deductible and you will be receipted directly by them. For a small fee, they send the funds on to us (saving us the paperwork) and we will send 100% of the funds to Abbé Heppelle. 

You may visit our web page at www.unavocetoronto.com or write us directly at unavocetoronto@gmail.com to arrange a donation directly to the Toronto Traditional Mass Society with 100% sent to him with a tax-receipt provided directly by us.

May God bless you and thank you

We don't know the value of one priest.
