Helping Our Seminarians
On Their Journey to the Priesthood
What is the Church-A-Thon?
The Church-A-Thon is a fundraising project to support the seminarians of the Legion of Christ in Rome. Rome has a lot of Churches, so instead of just running miles like a typical marathon we will be visting 25 Churches!

Days Until Church-A-Thon!
How it Works
Meet Brother Francis. Br. Francis is a seminarian here in Rome that wants to do an event to raise support for his scholarship….he wants to do something that is Spiritual (Praying in beautfiul Churches) Priestly (Interceding for others) Challenging (Walking all day) and Fun (sharing the day with many brothers) so he decides to do a Church-A-Thon!

Step 1: Preparation
Preparation, Brother Francis puts his bio on the website and gets ready for the Church-A-Thon with prayer and sacrifice.
Step 2: Reaching Out
Reaching Out, Brother Francis reaches out to all of his friends asking them to support him and his vocation through this event. Br. Francis’ friends also reach out to him asking him for special prayer intentions they may have.
Step 3: The Big Day!
The Big Day, Br. Francis and all the Church-A-Thon brothers wake up early to make it to St. Peter’s Basilica for mass. After mass they pray the Creed at the tomb of St. Peter and the Church-A-Thon begins! They head out on foot visiting 24 more Churches thanking God for their vocation and interceding for the souls entrusted to their care. 10 hours later they arrive home exhausted yet fulfilled from a day spent with their Lord and brothers.
Our Goal is to raise $50,000. Can you help us with this?
