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.
