2016SeminarianGroupPhotoThe Catholic Diocese of Sioux Fall provides priests for over 120 Catholic Parishes of East River South Dakota. In order to have priests and keep these parishes open, the church needs seminarians. In a time when many places have few seminarians, East River South Dakota has many of them.

The Diocese of Sioux Falls ranks among the highest for vocations per demographic population.

With all our seminarians comes a cost. The annual cost to educate a seminarian is around $40,000. We don’t want to turn any man away from the seminary due to financial reasons, therefore we want to support them. The Holy Smoke Car Show does just that! This is our 3rd year for the show and it is Located on the campus of O’Gorman High School, along 41st St.  All proceeds go directly to the Seminarian Education Fund for the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls.

The Vocations Office for the Diocese of Sioux Falls and the Knights of Columbus of the Sioux Falls Area have teamed up to make this event a reality. For more information please contact Fr. Shaun Haggerty the Director of Seminarians frshaunhaggerty@sfcatholic.org
