We are now just 8 days away from the long awaited Flying Pig Marathon weekend! I can hardly wait (and yet I’m VERY glad there is still a little time to get some miles in)! In addition to the last minute training opportunities, these last 8 days give us the opportunity to ramp up our final push for raising funds for our seminarians.
Over the last several months, we have been hesitant to mention the need for funds for our seminarians. We have emphasized the greater importance of influencing our Catholic culture to become more vocation-oriented. After all, a vocation-oriented culture is one that is supportive of our men in the seminary and one that supports men and women as they struggle with the call God has placed on their hearts to enter religious life or the seminary or to enter fully into the sacrament of marriage. A vocation-oriented culture also is generous to the men and women who need financial support to continue following their divine call and until together we can create such a culture, we begin with us.
So, over the next 8 days, I ask that you please prayerfully consider donating generously to the Run for the Call cause. There are three great ways to do that:
- Donate directly through our website
- Donate by purchasing Piggest Raffle Tickets
- Donate by making a pledge for one of our Run-a-thon participants
If you are not able to support us financially this year or at this time, we are also in great need of more prayer warriors who can commit to praying for Run for the Call and our seminarians at least once a week and, starting today, once a day for the next 8 days.
Thank you in advance for your great support!
