Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,
Did you know I was ordained at the Sacred Heart Monastery? That was 44 years ago!
Believe it or not, some of the same asbestos tiles are still covering the walls.
It is a lot of work, and expensive, to maintain the buildings on our big campus. We try to chip away with little maintenance projects as time and donations are available.
So, you can imagine how excited I was to find out a special group of friends has offered $100,000 to help fund maintenance projects through a special 5-times matching pledge.
Every dollar donated by August 31, 2018 will be worth FIVE TIMES as much in meeting our needed repairs.
As you know, we live simply and do not require luxury. However, we need to keep our facilities and campus up-to-date to help in the recruitment of more men for the priesthood.
A bright, modern, well-functioning facility helps reflect the vitality and excellence of our seminary programs.
You and I appreciate the great need for more priests. With this special pledge, your matching gift will have five times the impact and help fill our churches with needed priests!
Once again I am counting on your friendship, kindness and sacrificial gift during this special campaign.
May the Sacred Heart of Jesus bless you with His caring love and grand you His peace, today and always.
Sincerely in the Sacred Heart,
Father Dominic, SCJ
P.S. If you have been blessed by our ministry, may your heart compel you to respond with a generous gift for our 5-times matching pledge today.
