The St. Thomas Fund

The St. Thomas Fund is a particular method by which the SBM communities can contribute to healing the Church’s wounds. It was established in 1990 to support the poor of the Eastern Christian Churches in gratitude for the gift of the preservation of married priesthood by the Catholic Churches of the East. The  supporters of the fund hope to do this in particular by assisting in the education and the nurturance of the Christian children of the East wherever they may be. It is our hope that  such a ministry  can contribute to helping to heal the 17 centuries old wounds and pain of separation of the Christians of the East and the West. In recent times we have begun exploring ways in which the Fund can reach out to assist poor Eastern Rite children in Latin America as well as in the Middle East, Asia and Eastern Europe.

Also, the St. Thomas Fund donor community seeks to support the extra sacramental active ministry of married priests throughout the world in particular through evangelizing and supporting the spiritual lives of marginal Christians and helping them to participate in the active life of the Church which will have an overall healing effect.
