Support us on Giving Tuesday!
Jesuit Retreat House is excited to again be participating in We Give Catholic on Tuesday, November 28, which is Giving Tuesday – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, a national day of giving for nonprofits.
Donating to benefit Jesuit Retreat House is a seamless experience that you can do from your computer, tablet or smartphone at any time beginning at midnight on November 28 and continuing for a 24 hour period. Secure, tax-deductible donations will be accepted on the website weGiveCatholic.org. By designating Jesuit Retreat House, the money you contribute will benefit us directly and place us in the running to receive cash prizes throughout the day.
Your gift will help us create a quiet sanctuary for reflection & prayer for our retreatants.
Last year, your gifts of support replenished our Recovery Retreats Scholarship Fund. This year we are raising funds to make improvements to our Martyrs Chapel, named in honor of the Jesuit Martyrs of North America and of El Salvador who faced many difficulties, injustices, and torture while bringing the word of God to the Native American tribes of the West and civil war-torn El Salvador, respectively.
A number of improvements can be made to the Chapel that will enhance the experience for retreatants and visitors:
- Updating the fixtures & other aesthetics
- Adding a fresh coat of paint
- Installing new carpeting
- Installing a new HVAC system to keep the Chapel comfortable year-round
If you would like to participate, please remember to visit weGiveCatholic.org on Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 between 12:00am and 11:59pm and designate your donation to Jesuit Retreat House!
