5 Paths to the Priesthood

October 17, 2012

Five Paths to the Priesthood chronicles the very different journeys of five Dominican Friars to the moment of their ordination as priests of Jesus Christ and what this has meant to them in their new lives as servants of the people of God. I am happy to share with you that an anonymous benefactor with a special appreciation for our rising numbers of men in formation – we’re at 64 – and the real and substantial costs to pay for their formation ($48,000 per person/per year), has generously pledged $300,000 as a matching gift. This matching gift grant doubles gifts received for formation and education – doubling all gifts (and pledges) dollar-for-dollar up to $300,000. This is an extraordinary opportunity for the Foundation to raise $600,000, which would be a God-send. We are working very hard to meet this Matching Gift Challenge in a very short time-period. The deadline for raising these funds is December 31st. And we could use your help.  Please pass the word about this extraordinary giving opportunity to your friends, family, fellow parishioners, and anyone who might be willing to help.  Like us on Facebook, re-tweet us through Twitter, and link to us on the Internet. Please also consider starting your own campaign. One of our friends is running a marathon for her campaign to support vocations! Read about her story here. Click here to Donate Now!
