Dear Friend of Jesuit Retreat House,
We have lived the spirit of the Easter season in a special way this year amidst all the new life and growth at Jesuit Retreat House!
So much has happened since we broke ground in May two years ago. We are seeing major increases in the numbers of people we serve - from parishes and faith communities across the region and beyond, leadership groups in the Diocese of Cleveland and wider community, religious communities, high schools and colleges, people from a diversity of spiritual backgrounds, and from other local, national and even international organizations. We are grateful beyond words for the life and vitality they bring to JRH, and for the joy and appreciation they express about their experiences on our sacred grounds.
This summer we will continue with renovation work in our older building as well as improvements to our grounds. We have raised more than 85% of the $8 million goal for our Capital Campaign. For those who have not yet had the opportunity to participate in the campaign, please prayerfully consider how you can best express your care and support for JRH with a gift. We are building the foundation for our next 100 years in fulfilling our mission!
I want to add a word of thanks for Timothy Vuksic, our student intern from the Masters in Non -Profit Administration program at John Carroll University. He gave over 700 hours of service since beginning in September - a great experience for Tim and for our JRH development efforts.
God be with you,
Richard S. Krivanka, Executive Director
