Catholic Ministries Appeal
Creating Pathways to Vocations
Updated: Dec 16, 2021
Your donation to the Catholic Ministries Appeal supports Vocations to the priesthood in our Diocese. It ensures that our seminarians have the time, resources and guidance they need to discern their call to service. It also works to create a diocesan-wide culture that supports vocations, through promotion, education, and parish-based efforts to raise awareness of the priesthood.
Father Sean Magaldi began his journey to the priesthood after he graduated from college and became a campus minister at Adelphi. It was there that he knew he was called to ministry. That calling continued in his junior year at Chaminade where he was inspired by the dedicated Brothers there.
Today Fr. Magaldi serves as the Vocations Director at the Diocese of Rockville Centre.
“Looking at the different journeys that I have embarked on, the Catholic Ministries Appeal has been involved in all of them. The CMA funds Campus Ministry and my path was a result of that program. After entering the seminary, being ordained and today working as the Vocations Director, is all due to the generosity of the people who support the Catholic Ministries Appeal.”
