Time's Running Out!
An Exclusive Offer Only for Our Donors
This is the perfect opportunity to have your own personalized banner in our Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Book as well as two tickets to our fourth annual Augustinian Gala. Take advantage of this unique opportunity with a gift of $1,000 to support the Augustinians. You must act by February 27.
We're So Close to Our Goal!
We're over the 90% mark of our $3.5 million goal for our campaign. This campaign must finish by April 22, though. If you can't come to the gala, can you find it in your heart to make a pledge of $1,000? You can extend your pledge over two years and still receive your own personalized banner in the Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Book.
A significant gift today means a richer Augustinian future.
We're counting on you to help us achieve our goal. This campaign is about more than money. Its about securing the future of our presence in schools, parishes, and missions. All gifts of $75 or more are listed in our Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Book, but we need your commitment by February 27!
What does this campaign support?
Simply put? Our future.
This campaign supports the financial stability and future of the Midwest Augustinians. It is building two trusts that are vital to the future of our schools, parishes, and missions:
- The Father Ray Ryan, O.S.A. Trust supports the education and housing costs of our men in formation (seminarians).
- The Journey of a Lifetime Trust supports the retirement needs of the Augustinians.
Without the support of these trusts, the Augustinians might not be able to provide for the needs of the future Augustinians in our parishes and schools.
About the Augustinian Gala
The gala, now in its fourth year, is the unique opportunity to celebrate what it truly means to be a part of our Augustinian Family. This year, friars and supporters from across the country will join together in celebrating our three honorees:
- Fr. Mike Slattery, O.S.A., Pastor Emeritus of St. Jude, New Lenox; St. Clare of Montefalco, Chicago; St. Augustine, Philadelphia
- Mr. Ernie Mrozek, President of St. Rita of Cascia High School, Chicago
- The late Fr. Ted Tack, O.S.A., Prior General Emeritus of the Augustinian Order; Headmaster of Cascia Hall
Proceeds from the gala provide annual operating support for our vocations, retired and infirm friars, and our missions in Peru. So please join us on April 22, 2016 at the Drake Hotel in Chicago.
