“‘May the Passion of Christ Be Always in Our Hearts.’
“Dear Friend of the Passionists,
“As we get closer to the holiday season, particularly the celebration of Thanksgiving, I want to invite you to participate in our THANKSGIVING SWEEPSTAKES DRAWING.
“Many of our friends have participated and tell us that extra spending money at this time of year is very helpful. The Grand Prize is $2,500, so I urge you to return your tickets right away in order to qualify for the Grand Prize Drawing on November 19 with an “Early Bird” drawing on November 14.
“You do not have to send a gift in order to qualify, but I hope that you will. Our work among the poor and suffering expands daily, as those we serve in Haiti, Jamaica, West Indies and here in the United States grow in numbers. Our Passionist priests and brothers serve those who have fallen through the cracks of our society...the poor, the elderly and youth at risk. We bring to each of those we serve the compassion and love of God and the redemption we find in the Passion of Christ.
“Your prayers and your financial gifts can make a great difference in the lives of those we serve. They are also a benefit to our aged and infirm priests and brothers who need special care.
“Please help support our ministries with a gift of $15, $25, $50 or more. Be assured that whatever you send will be a blessing to us both!
“I have already filled out your tickets. You simply need to complete the additional information and return the tickets along with your donation and the Reply Form in the envelope enclosed. You need not contribute to win, but we hope you are moved to do so.
“Good luck and God bless you.
“Gratefully yours in Christ,
“Father Robert Joeger, C.P.
“P. S. Please write your special intentions on the Reply Form. When you do, please include the less fortunate among us whom we serve. Remember also our Passionist Missionaries in your prayers as we struggle with the same financial hardships as the rest of the nation and the world. Thank you!
