Dear Friend of Jesuit Retreat Center,
We begin this year with deep gratitude for the countless experiences of God’s grace that we have been blessed to see in the lives of over 7,000 people served in the past year - even moments that reflect true miracles in bringing healing and hope to people’s lives.
We are also grateful to share the wonderful news that we are at the edge of surpassing our $8 million goal for our Capital Campaign: To Journey, To Build, To Profess. Our theme is taken from the first homily of Pope Francis after his election, and inscribed at the entrance to the new addition.
These words speak to the enduring mission of Jesuit Retreat Center in being companions to those we serve on our 121-year journey, and building a ministry to faithfully profess God’s love and mercy to every life we touch.
We have completed major renovations in the past year to accompany the beautiful new addition and have more improvements planned for our building and grounds, in addition to growing an endowment to sustain our mission for the next 100 years. We are improving our communications and use of technology, and work will be completed by this spring to transform our website to be more engaging and user-friendly.
We are so very thankful to all of you who have supported JRC in your prayers, your presence at our retreats and programs, and your generosity to our Capital Campaign and Annual Fund. All that we do is made possible through your care and support.
May the peace of Christ be ever with you in this New Year,
Richard S. Krivanka, Executive Director
