An Easter Message to Our Partners

Father Don Tranel Development DirectorChrist is risen!

My heart is filled with passion and joy as I reflect on Jesus’ ultimate gift – His death and Resurrection. I’m reminded of the promise that as believers we are released from sin and death and can walk fully in the life God planned for us. We are free!

As St. Paul wrote in Ephesians, “Be imitators of God… and live in love, as Christ loved us.”  I feel the Lord’s invitation for all of His children to search our hearts and ask,

How can I imitate Christ today? How can I reflect His generosity and His sacrificial love to my family, my community, my world?

You don’t have to look far to find people who are crying out for God’s love and mercy in the Glenmary mission territories. In many of our missions, the population has been ravished by drug epidemics. Unemployment and poverty rates skyrocket above the national averages, and people fall into despair.

With your support, Glenmarians are able to respond to these situations and put our faith into action. Your gifts enable us to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in rural America. Whether we are delivering food, ministering in prisons, helping a neighbor with a housing repair or offering families pastoral and spiritual care, we radiate God’s joy and aim to fill people’s hearts with gladness.

Your support has served the American home mission field well this year! In our 10 missions, we’ve served thousands of Americans.

We are excited and honored to share how God is moving in our ministry, and have enclosed special Easter cards for you to share the joy of our faith and our work with your own loved ones. However, despite our successes, we need your help to continue our ministry. 

We believe every day is a chance to awaken the love of God in another person. As Pope Saint John Paul II said, “We are an Easter people and Hallelujah is our song!” Let’s partner to bring this Resurrection hope to the home mission field!
