#GivingTuesdayNow For Seminary in Cheshire

#GivingTuesdayNow May 5th, is a global day of giving as an emergency response to the Covid-19 crisis.

The Legionaries of Christ are on the frontline during this pandemic spiritually nourishing their flock, anointing the sick and consoling families. Help us support the Seminary in Cheshire so that we can have more of these dedicated priests. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to support our young men as they discern their call to the priesthood. 

Starting at 1pm EDT on Tuesday, May 5, we will be hosting “Fireside Chats” with several of our priests throughout the day on the Legionaries of Christ Facebook page. They will be answering questions from our seminarians as well as from all of you LIVE! Tune in to hear their vocation stories, pivotal moments in their call to the priesthood, favorite memories from their time at the Seminary in Cheshire and simply get to know these Holy priests and the work they do building Christ’s Kingdom.

We will be sharing our progress toward our $50,000 goal for the seminary throughout the day with you. A link to donate will be available in the comments section of each Fireside Chat. If you’re not able to make it but would still like to participate in this #GivingTuesdayNow initiative for the seminarians you may donate at this link.

Alex Kucera has lived in Atlanta, GA, for the last 46 years. He is one of 9 children, married to his wife Karmen, and has 3 girls, one grandson, and a granddaughter on the way. Alex joined Regnum Christi in 2007. Out of the gate, he joined the Helping Hands Medical Missions apostolate and is still participating today with the Ghana Friendship Mission.

In 2009, Alex was asked to be the Atlanta RC Renewal Coordinator for the Atlanta Locality to help the RC members with the RC renewal process. Alex became a Group Leader in 2012 for four of the Atlanta Men’s Section Teams and continues today. Running in parallel, in 2013, Alex became a Team Leader and shepherded a large team of good men.

Alex was honored to be the Atlanta Mission Coordinator between 2010 to 2022 (12 years), coordinating 5-8 Holy Week Mission teams across Georgia. He also created and coordinated missions at a parish in Athens, GA, for 9 years. Alex continues to coordinate Holy Week Missions, Advent Missions, and Monthly missions at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Cumming, GA.

From 2016 to 2022, Alex also served as the Men’s Section Assistant in Atlanta. He loved working with the Men’s Section Director, the Legionaries, Consecrated, and Women’s Section leadership teams.

Alex is exceptionally grateful to the Legionaries, Consecrated, and many RC members who he’s journeyed shoulder to shoulder, growing his relationship with Christ and others along the way. He knows that there is only one way, that’s Christ’s Way, with others!
