Please, Prayerfully Consider...
Dear Friends, Parents, Alumni, Students, and Stakeholders,
Our dream of a vibrant, evangelical, Catholic presence at Texas State is becoming a reality! In fact, our outreach and evangelization initiatives have been extremely successful this semester. We see the fruit they have borne in a significant increase in student participation at the H.L. Grant Catholic Student Center in the last year! New groups such as FOCUS, Catholic Households, the L.I.G.H.T Confirmation Retreat Ministry, and Theology of the Body have established a solid foundation.
In light of our success, we are in need of your assistance and ask that you partner with us at the H.L. Grant Catholic Student Center. We cannot continue to minister to 700 students on last year's budget, and we need your help!
This Sunday, you have the unique opportunity to participate in a Matching Gift Sunday. Every dollar that you give, will be matched by an anonymous donor! A gift of $1,000.00 will become $2,000.00! Please see the section below for more information on how to make your matching gift.
Thank you for continuing to share your gifts to help advance this important ministry! College students are the future leaders of our Catholic Church, and together we can reach more of the 8,000 Catholic students here at Texas State University.
Fr. Brian Eilers
