We’re on Our Way to Appalachia Because of YOU!

 

This weekend, members of our Alternative Spring Break Mission Trip team attended all the Masses at St. Bernard’s making announcements and collecting donations for our trip.  The team has been busy preparing for the trip, including fundraising the approximately $5,200 it will take to get all of us down to B-Farm and back.  To be honest, we thought that people would be generous, but we had no idea just how generous until the final numbers came in late last night:

YOU GUYS!  You helped us raise almost $1,500 dollars!!!!  We are totally awed and humbled at such a response, and we can’t thank you enough.  Truly.

If you missed Mass this weekend, or forgot your wallet, or otherwise still want to help us out, click here for more information on supporting the team through prayer and finances.

If you’d like to help the Newman Center with our annual fundraising goal of $4,250 (which includes a $3,000 goal for the Mission Trip), click here for more information.  All donations are tax-deductible!

You generosity (and God’s grace) is what makes it possible for this program to go from ordinary to out of this world!  We’ve experienced such growth in the last few years, and having a larger budget to be able to do things like this Mission Trip, overnight retreats, and simply fill the kitchen every week makes the difference between a surviving student community and a thriving one!  Thank you so very much.
