Here’s how you can join us as a Ministry Sponsor!
Have you ever had someone ask you a question about your Catholic faith, and you stood there not able to respond because you didn’t know the answer? Have you ever wanted to learn the faith better but didn’t know where to go to get started or how to fit it into your busy schedule? Or have you ever wondered how you could do something to help others learn more about God
An invitation to join in a mission!
We would like to invite you to join with us in a mission – a teaching ministry that will bring us and our family and others to a greater knowledge and appreciation of the beauty of the Catholic faith – a faith that has the power to transform us and the world!
Dear Grace Ministries – a new apostolate
In early 2004, a group of faithful Catholics came together to establish “Dear Grace Ministries” – an apostolate dedicated to Catholic faith formation and evangelization. We want to strengthen the average Catholic's knowledge and practice of the faith and also reach out to those who have fallen away. In our very busy world, one of the last things that many of us think about is our faith. Our mission at Dear Grace Ministries is to come up with ways that will help Catholics gain a better understanding of the faith and how to live it out in their daily lives! How can we live it if we don’t know it?
The Dear Grace column in parish bulletins
The initial project of Dear Grace Ministries is to make the Catholic Dear Grace question and answer column available to parishes as a Sunday bulletin insert – in both English and Spanish! As many of you know, Dear Grace is a Catholic question and answer newspaper column which is published regularly in various newspapers around the country. This bulletin insert project has already started and has several subscribing parishes. But we need many more parishes to sign up for it so that every parishioner in the pew will have access to it. Catholics have so many questions, and the Sunday parish bulletin is an excellent way to answer them! We want to make the bulletin insert available on a weekly basis to parishes around the country. We need your help to do that.
Other ways that we are reaching out to teach the faith
Dear Grace Ministries will also be active in offering courses and talks at parishes and conferences and in making educational CDs. We have recently published our first CD entitled “Mary in the Plan of God” - recorded in August at a three-day conference given at Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church in Harlingen, Texas.
Our ministry has many more ideas in mind for teaching the beautiful truths of the Catholic faith. We want to explore the possibility of starting a “Dear Grace” Catholic radio program, organize Catholic apologetics conferences, produce and distribute educational Catholic audio/visual teaching materials, and much more!
We need you in this mission!
To do all these things, we need the help of Catholics like you who believe in this mission of building the faith. Right now, Dear Grace Ministries must raise the necessary funds to carry out our intended Catholic outreach and evangelization projects in the coming year. We hope that we can count on your help.
We are all called to learn and share the faith!
God will ask us someday, “what did you do to help others to learn about me?”
We invite you to become a regular monthly or annual sponsor of this ministry. No contribution will be considered too small. Can you give $5, $10, $25,…$100 a month to help us? Can you sacrifice one hamburger meal, dinner and movie, or a new outfit to participate in this work and make a difference in the lives of many?
As a sponsor, you will receive a quarterly newsletter that will keep you informed about Dear Grace Ministries’ activities and give you ideas about how you can deepen your own faith and that of your family. You will also receive discounts on our educational CDs and videos, as well as events. As a special gift, all new regular sponsors will receive a 50% discount on our newly released 3-CD set titled “Mary in the Plan of God.” You will notice on our donation form that we can now accept your credit or debit card by phone or mail. This method makes it easy to be a sponsor. You don’t have to mail anything in! Tell us how much you wish to give, and we will take care of the rest.
