"As a newly ordained Passionist priest, I see myself truly privileged and blessed. I strongly believe that the Passion of Christ will continue to inspire and strengthen me."

Supporting the Campaign
By addressing the need to provide sufficient support for the senior members of the Passionist community, we are also supporting the mission of the wider Passionist community. The financial resources available to the Province are limited, with an increasing percentage going toward the care of senior Passionists. With these dedicated Campaign funds supporting the needs of senior Passionists and the training and formation of younger Passionists and lay collaborators in ministry, then other valuable financial resources can be placed in the service of Passionist ministries throughout the Province and beyond.
The Campaign will have two phases:
Phase I:Comprehensive care for senior Passionists | $5 million
Phase II:Formation and training of the next generation of vowed and lay Passionist leaders | $1 million
Please prayerfully consider making a pledge in support of this Campaign. Please contact the Campaign Office at 800.295.9048 for more information.
Ways to Give
Donors to The Passion of Christ: The Love That Compels Campaign will participate in the first-ever Campaign for Holy Cross Province. Holy Cross Province is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt religious organization. All gifts are taxdeductible as allowed by law.
Cash. The most common method of making a gift is to contribute by cash or check. In addition to the blessings you receive for your gift, you may also benefit through claiming a charitable deduction on your tax return. It will be possible to set up an automatic withdrawal schedule for your gift if that is desired.
Securities. Shares of appreciated stocks and bonds are easy and convenient ways to support the campaign. The gift is recorded at its current market value, and the benefit includes paying no capital gains tax for this charitable donation. You are able to receive a significant tax deduction on donated shares held more than one year.
Planned Gifts. Gifts left in a Will or Trust greatly benefit the Passionists and the future needs of Holy Cross Province. Charitable Annuities, IRA, Charitable Lead or Remainder Trusts, and Life Insurance are among the variety of instruments used to make a future charitable gift.
