Dear Friend of Jesuit Retreat Center,
It is a joy to be living in the spirit of this Easter season with the abundance of new life at Jesuit Retreat Center! The flow of grace in the lives of our retreatants is a wonder to behold.
We continue to have some of our best months ever in the numbers of people we are honored to serve. And the stories we hear are ever-inspiring: “I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed my retreat! My trips to JRC are always peaceful - allowing me to "block" the "noise" of the world out - to let Christ guide and speak to me!” “The retreat was so wonderful. I have fallen more in love with God. JRC is the perfect place!”
We are very pleased to announce that we have surpassed our $8 million goal for our Capital Campaign: To Journey, To Build, To Profess with the gifts and pledges we have received from our very generous donors. We continue to raise funds for further improvements to our older building and our grounds, in addition to growing an endowment to sustain our mission for the next 100 years. Even our website is being transformed to be much 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,
Richard S. Krivanka, Executive Director
