As some of you may know, I have visited an SSPX seminary a couple months ago. It was quite an experience. One of the questions I asked while I was there was about tuition and how the seminarians pay for it. I was surprised to learn that once you join you can no longer work over the summer breaks you have. So, I asked some of the seminarians and the rector how the seminarians were able to pay the tuition. Their answer was through family, friends, and benefactors. Also, Providence, thus God will provide a way if it is His Will. Perhaps it is my lack of faith in Providence, since I do see this as an obstacle. I do not have friends that could help me. I do have a big extended family that could likely help, however, I did mention the tuition part upon returning and they seem apathetic. This is no surprise since all of them are either Novus Ordo Catholics who are pretty much lapsed or protestant.
It is not certain that I will enter the seminary. I still have to go to a priory/school this September for a year to prepare me for possibly entering the seminary. If I do go, it will probably be next year.
I was wondering if any of you know any ways on how some seminarians have paid for their tuition. I would greatly appreciate it if any of you have any ideas on what I should do.
