In May 2021, I am challenging myself to walk the El Camino.  It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it doesn’t come without sacrifice or challenge.  In fact, as the training miles tick off, I’ve thought a lot about challenges and how to overcome them.  As we say at Catholic Leadership Institute, “I have to do it myself, but I cannot do it alone.”

So today I invite you to join me in a different challenge – one bestowed upon us by a generous donor.  

This donor wants to inspire monthly giving and will match the first 12 months of all new monthly commitments made before November 1st.  This is a wonderful opportunity to double your impact this year!

But that’s not what’s most important about this challenge. Catholic Leadership Institute is seeing an increase in requests for support from priests, parishes, and dioceses around the country during this unique time.  Your monthly gift will provide CLI with the resources to say “yes” to these requests for help. 

Would you consider making a monthly gift?  I know this is called a matching gift “challenge” – but I can’t help but think it’s more of an opportunity.  It is a gift every month that will make walking in a priest’s or bishop’s or church leader’s shoes a little easier.  Even $10 a month makes that happen. 

 In recognition of any monthly gift, you’ll receive an exclusive invitation to our new series, “The Leadership Confessional.”  This series will feature unique and personal conversations with prominent Catholic leaders from around the country. 

When I take my training walk today, I will pray for you, your loved ones, and our Church during this time.  Through Catholic Leadership Institute’s ministry and philanthropy, we will all keep walking together alongside our Church leaders.

I thank you for considering this opportunity!
