Dear Friends of the Jesuits,
Christmas is a time of year for love, laughter, and reflection as we want to imitate God by giving to others. Our Savior, Jesus Christ was given by God out of love, and we wish to give to others with the same passion. This is also a time to look back on the year and be grateful for the abundant blessings we have received in the last 12 months. This may be challenging with everything happening in the world. Our Jesuits will find love, joy, and consolation through their ministries that our caring donors support.
We rely on the generosity of donors like you to enable the resources necessary for Jesuit formation and caring for our infirmed Jesuits. Educating our younger Jesuits for ministry in the world that desperately needs faith leaders, is more important than ever. Our elderly and sick Jesuits after a lifetime of serving continue to pray for our friends, donors, and fellow Jesuits.
The Jesuit Christmas cards are available again this year, one is included in this package. If you would like to order more, please contact the Jesuit Office of Advancement at 416-481-9154 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to assist.
We hope you will consider a gift to the Jesuits this Christmas. With your help we can do something beautiful for God. Together we will strive for what St. Ignatius calls the greater glory of God.
We are most grateful for your prayers, gifts, and generosity during this Christmas season.
Respectfully Yours in Christ,
Director of Advancement – Directeur de développement
