 Sacred Heart Seminary A request of Archbishop Most Rev. Allen H. Vigneron and the Rector of Sacred Heart Major Seminary, former State Chaplain Msgr. Todd Lajiness is being honored by the State Board and the State Board has committed to this endeavor until June 30, 2026. 

We, the State Board of the Michigan Knights of Columbus, have established a Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program for the Sacred Heart Major Seminary, with the scholarship/s distribution awarded from the interest earned annually (probably a maximum of 4%). It is anticipated that we will at a minimum, raise one million dollars for the endowment.

We will be asking for a voluntary six ($6.00) a year per member to fund this endowment. The first request will be attached to the annual dues billing starting in December 2017.

The Financial Secretary can use the linked, MIKofC Endowment Scholarship Fund Flyer and mail with the their 2018 Council Dues notice.  This is our way to help "Support Vocations to the Priesthood"  with your donation.

Checks should be written to Michigan Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc.

(the Michigan Knights of Columbus 501(c)(3) account.)

 Keep the Faith Alive

All funds for the Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program for Sacred Heart Major Seminary will be directed to our charitable account. This would allow for contributions to Sacred Heart Major Seminary for the Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program to be tax deductible.


The Tuition Endowment Scholarship Program will be used for seminarians in need of financial support.


The RSVP program will continue to be in full support of individual seminarians of your choice to the seminary of your choice. We would also encourage all jurisdictions to create their own tuition endowment seminarian fund.
