Matching Gift

Student Brothers of the Dominican House of Studies 2012 - Pray for Vocations!
The Student Brothers in Washington.
We currently have an additional 13 brothers in our Novitiate in Cincinnati.

As many know, the Province of St. Joseph has had a great influx of vocations over the last several years.  It is a great gift and grace to the Province, but it also brings challenges.  One gives up much to enter religious life, but they still expect to eat.  Room and Board for 63 men in formation is not inexpensive, and in addition to that is the cost of their education.  Some weeks ago we received a notice from an anonymous benefactor who was willing to give us a matching donation, up to $300,000, for funds we raised.

If you are able to give some money--any any amount will do--you can double the benefit for the Province by giving now.  More details are at our Provincial website:  Matching Donation Challenge.

Please forward this message on, post it in facebook, tweet it, google plus it, and generally let everyone you can know about it.
