BENEFITING: ST AUGUSTINE UNIVERSITY PARISH
"Only in Christ can men and women find answers to the ultimate questions that trouble them. Only in Christ can they fully understand their dignity as persons created and loved by God. Jesus Christ is "the only Son from the Father…full of grace and truth."
—John Paul II. World Youth Day, 1993. Denver, Colorado.
My dear friends,
I need your help in order to help the future of our Church and our world.
I have been called to work at the Newman Center at St. Augustine University Parish of Platteville, Wisconsin. It is there that I will be working with a team to minister to the students of the university by offering spiritual and psychological development, education, service and leadership. I am excited to share the joy of Christ’s love, the message of His mercy and our need to surrender to Him in all aspects of our lives with these students.
On the most basic level, the lives of these students affect us all. They will graduate and become a part of the working world that sustains all of our lives in some way. They are the next generation of our world, and the next generation of our Church.
Investing in their lives is an investment in the future of all our lives. Of course, as with any Church ministry, some fundraising is involved, to make living expenses possible. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of others. In fact, without the support of those who believe in the mission, it would not be possible for the mission to continue. That is why I am asking you to please pray about partnering with me and creating a community built on truth, support and love for all of the students of the University of Wisconsin, Platteville, both Catholic and non-Catholic alike. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ, and we all deserve this type of community. This is my calling from the Holy Spirit, but like anything else we do in life, I cannot do it alone. I have put my life in God’s hands, but I need earthly support of prayer and financial partnership. I need people who believe in this mission, and while they can’t be out in the field every day with me acting as the hands and feet, they can act as the backbone. Without the backbone, the hands and feet won’t work.
By supporting this mission, you are supporting the future generation. If you have any questions, or wish to become a full time partner in the mission, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, or give me a call at 262-470-0731
Thank you for your consideration. Ultimately, I ask each and every one of you for your prayers - with God all things are possible. :)
May God bless you and keep you!
