WAYS TO GIVE TO ORATORY of the little way
Periodically the Oratory reaches out to our family of supporters to request financial assistance to maintain the ministry. It costs the Oratory approx. $60,000 a year to maintain the current level of services. Part of these expenses are covered by fees for various programs and retreats but we still need help. Even small gifts can make a difference.
There are many hurting individuals who turn to the Oratory as a refuge. But for many of them it is a struggle to cover the expense. So, we have established a scholarship fund to cover the expense they can not cover for themselves. Your gift to the scholarship fund will provide a welcome retreat and let them know that someone cares for them.
Over the years there have been a few individuals with the heart and the resources to begin an endowment fund. This fund provides the Oratory with resources needed to balance the budget, offer new and exciting programs, and maintain the facilities. Gifts of $1,000 or more can be earmarked for the endowment fund.
There are many hurting individuals who turn to the Oratory as a refuge. But for many of them it is a struggle to cover the expense. When someone is down and out, hurting physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and financially the last thing we want to do is tell them, “no.” So, we have established a scholarship fund to cover the expense they can not cover for themselves. Your gift to the scholarship fund will provide a welcome retreat and let them know that someone cares for them.
For many of us, giving on a regular basis has to be done judiciously. The resources we have must first cover our own needs. One of these days whatever resources we possess will remain behind us. Those resources may be vast, they may be meager. How they will be distributed is up to us while we are here. Remembering the Oratory in your will is a wonderful way to secure a legacy of love. Please consider adding a line to your will that mentions the Oratory of the Little Way in any amount you deem appropriate.
There are those who give on a regular basis, usually once a month. Added together these wonderful friends help the Oratory maintain it’s mission. It doesn’t take much to go a long way. Your monthly gift of $5, $10 or more would underwrite the ministry, keep programs and facilities the best they can be and touch lives in miraculous ways.
