St. Cyprian of Carthage Fund

You are invited to be among the first donors to support a new initiative.

A fund in honor of St. Cyprian of Carthage—the African bishop, church father, and hieromartyr—is being established for African seminarians who would not be able to attend St. Vladimir’s Seminary without financial support.

Education at our seminary is enhanced by the experience and viewpoints of students from outside North America . In recent years, seminarians from Australia, Bosnia,  Egypt, Estonia, Great Britain, Greece, India, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Sweden, and Uganda have come together on our campus, and become a living witness to the reality of the diverse members in the body of Christ.                       

Soon, we will interview and receive prospective students from Cameroon, Kenya, and Nigeria. And the number of those applying for entry will be growing, due to the closure of seminaries in Kenya and South Africa because of financial crises.

You can be instrumental in our preparation to receive these men and women from sub-Saharan Africa.

Recipients of this aid will return to their home countries to bolster the growth of Orthodox Christianity within the Patriarchate of Alexandria and All Africa.
