This is how God showed His love among us, He sent His only Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
- 1 John 4:9
As Christmas approaches, we reflect on the beautiful gift that we received: God, who is love, became man to give Himself to us.
Our world desperately needs the divine love of Christ, and this is particularly true for our youth. So many feel unimportant, lonely, and unloved. SPIRITUS missionaries bring the love of Christ to the youth they serve through engaging and inspiring retreats and youth ministry programs. By sharing their experiences, leading small groups, and praying with each student, the missionaries demonstrate the love of Christ and help the youth encounter Him.
Your support of SPIRITUS gives the gift of Christ's love to Catholic youth all over Wisconsin.
After a Confirmation retreat, a student shared "This retreat showed me that I’m not okay, I need to help myself, to break down barriers, and to start loving myself because God will always love me."
Another added, " It changes your mind, fills your heart with love and you encounter God."
Your support also brings God's love to the missionaries themselves.
Kelsey shared, "My faith is coming more alive because as I learn more, I see the big picture of creation. Everything the Lord has done has always been a deeper way of loving us. We see this in salvation history and in the way the Catholic Church has been built. I find that every time I learn something new about my faith in formation class I feel as though God has just replenished His love for me."
Please partner with SPIRITUS to share the tremendous gift of Christ's love!
