Institute receives $80,000 from Knights
The Institute for Priestly Formation's (IPF) summer program for diocesan seminarians received a financial boost recently from the Knights of Columbus.
The Institute received $75,000 from the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus and $5,000 from the Knights' Nebraska State Council.
The gifts will help form seminarians to better serve parishes around the country, said Father Richard Gabuzda, executive director of IPF, which was founded in 1994 in Omaha to assist bishops in the spiritual formation of seminarians and priests.
Since 1995, nearly 1,600 seminarians from 146 U.S. dioceses have gathered at Creighton University in Omaha, where IPF is based, to participate in a 10-week summer formation program that includes prayer, study and service.
