In addition to preparing priests to serve the Church, Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology also has a strong commitment to youth ministry, and to those young people who are the “future” of the Church.
“One Bread, One Cup” is a five-day liturgical leadership conference for high school youth and the adults who minister to them. Conferences include catechesis, liturgical and spiritual formation and theological reflection; plus, opportunities for fellowship and fun with a community of their peers. At the end of the session, teens leave with a better understanding of, and appreciation for, the Benedictine balance of prayer, work and recreation.
Today marks opening day for the first of three sessions to be held this summer. Students converging on the Hill have worked hard to get here and enjoy the conference. Though some scholarships are available, many of the teens and their adult supporters rely on fundraising efforts to cover attendance fees.
We’ve told you before how our Snail’s Pace “All for the Church” fundraising program can benefit any group trying to raise money in a responsible fashion. But if you’re a Catholic school, church, or organization, you’re providing 100% support for the Church when you choose Snail’s Pace. And if you’re looking for ways to fund your next trip to “One Bread, One Cup,” Snail’s Pace is an especially appropriate choice!
Catholic groups earn up to 50% of the profits, and the remainder goes to support the ministries and good works (like “One Bread, One Cup”) of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, the owner of Snail’s Pace.
By choosing All for the Church Fundraising, you’re directly supporting these worthwhile missions, while providing funds for your own group’s needs. On top of that, you’re also making an environmentally-responsible choice when you use Snail’s Pace.
All Snail’s Pace cards, wraps and other unique stationery items are produced in a manner that honors the principles of Catholic theology calling us to be stewards of our natural resources. And because so many Catholic schools have made ecology an important part of their curriculum, Snail’s Pace/All for the Church is a perfect complement to lesson plans that urge students to consider their personal and community’s impact on the environment.
With so many choices available, selecting the right fundraiser for your Catholic school, church or organization can seem a daunting task. Snail’s Pace/All for the Church seeks to make that decision easier by providing not just a program or product — but by providing a true partnership that benefits your group, our Archabbey, and all the people around the world the Catholic Church serves.
