The rector's circle

On behalf of our Rector/President, Very Reverend Steven P. Beseau, we invite you to prayerfully consider joining the Pontifical College Josephinum Rector’s Circle, a giving society dedicated to providing sustainable financial support for the mission of the Josephinum.  

Enroll as a Rector's Circle Member


Beginning each July, you are welcomed into your tier based on your past year's giving. New members are automatically enrolled into the Rector’s Circle upon receipt of $1,500 in combined giving across all appeals. Members can enter higher tiers throughout the formation year based on their giving from that year and will be reassessed in July based on their total giving from July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023.  

The Rector’s Circle Signature Events & Benefits of each giving tier are below. With each tier, you are invited to additional Signature Events. Upon initial enrollment, you enter more deeply into the life of our seminary community by joining us for the special events for all members, also listed below.
