THE SOCIETY OF ST. PETER THE APOSTLE
 

WHAT IS THE SOCIETY OF ST. PETER THE APOSTLE?


Seminarians in Thailand

The Society of St. Peter the Apostle is one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies.  Its principal aim is to encourage prayer and financial assistance for vocations to the priesthood and religious life in the missions.

Stephanie Bigard and her daughter Jeanne responded to a request by a French missionary bishop of Nagazaki, Japan, asking for financial help to keep his seminary open. They contacted their friends and collected the funds for the bishop in Japan. They also helped seminaries in India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Korea and China. Today there are over 30,000 seminarians in about 400 major seminaries receiving help from St. Peter the Apostle as well as about 10,000 Men and Women Religious novices who receive financial assistance.
