Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ,
For those of you that do not know me, my name is Connor Kleb and I am here asking for your support to help me enter seminary for the Diocese of Arlington.
My vocation story begins at home. I am the middle of seven children and my parents went through a reconversion the year I was born. They emphasized the primary importance of faith through their example and led us to each have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His Mother. I was blessed with an easy faith, and always had burning questions about the nature of God. I am so grateful that Mom and Dad sacrificed everything to send all seven of us through an authentic Catholic education where my questions found answers. During that time, I sought to draw closer to God through Alter serving,5 mission trips, and other ministries in which I was involved. I learned the mysteries and truths of our faith at Seton High School, and in turn attended Franciscan University to continue my spiritual formation in an authentically Catholic collegiate atmosphere. Through prayer and time spent with our Lord I have heard His call to enter Seminary and continue on this path of further vocational discernment.
As I stated, my parents made many sacrifices to send 7 children through 12 years of private education. When it came time for college, I took out loans to go to the place I believe gave me the best tools for success while fostering my spiritual life. Now that I have heard God's call, I am in a predicament. The Arlington Diocese would like me to pay off a significant amount of my student debt before they will accept me for seminary. I have a fervent desire to serve Christ and His Church. I want to dedicate my life to administering the sacraments to His people. I need your help to make that happen.
If you can give, please consider making a donation to this campaign. Perhaps you are looking for a new way to tithe or have some extra for charitable giving. Anything helps and is appreciated more than you know.
Please share this with as many faith-filled men and women as you know. My hope is to get this paid down as soon as possible to apply and enter seminary.
If you can or cannot give monetarily at this time, please keep me and all who are discerning religious vocations in your prayers. Be sure of my prayers for you and your family. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to hear my vocation story in more detail.
Thank you for your love and support and may God Bless you!
