A young couple participating at a Bishop's Guild eventGoals & Participation


The idea to begin the Bishop’s Guild was born out of the need to fill a $1 million gap in the seminarians’ budget in 2012. It kicked off with three pilot parishes: Good Shepherd in Colleyville, Most Blessed Sacrament in Arlington, and St. Patrick Cathedral in Fort Worth.


There are three levels of membership:

  • General Membership is a three-year commitment of $2,500 a year ($208 per month) for a total of $7,500. (Renewal options after year three)
  • Associate Membership is for people in their 20’s and 30’s with a $1,000 commitment ($83.33 per month) (Annual renewal options)
  • Lifetime Membership is for a one-time commitment of $50,000. (No annual renewals)


The ultimate goal is 400 members that would generate $1 million annually. For more information, please contact the Executive Director of the Advancement Foundation, Paula K. Parrish.
