Dear Friend of the Passionists,
This year, 2020, is the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Passionists!
Our founder, St. Paul of the Cross, was inspired to gather companions to promote the memory of the Passion of Jesus as the greatest sign of God’s love for the world. St. Paul would do this in various ways. His main ministry was preaching parish missions, but he also invited people to spend time with the Passionists to learn how to pray on the Passion. St. Paul wrote thousands of letters of spiritual direction and encouragement to many people and tended to people’s needs, going where others would not go.
Over these three hundred years, we Passionists strive to remain true to St. Paul’s vision, proclaiming Christ Crucified in various ways. In that spirit, we Passionists offer a selection of quality all occasion cards that you are invited to use in communicating with others – for birthdays, for healing, to express gratitude or to share sympathy. Each card carries with it the promise of your prayer and that of the Passionist Community for the person mentioned. You may want to add your special hand-written note.
As you use the cards, send us the names of those you want remembered in prayer. We ask you to kindly consider making a donation in support of our Passionist life and ministries when you send in those names. Together, you and we proclaim Jesus Crucified’s unconditional love for every person.
I call upon God’s special blessing for you and yours, asking your prayerful support as we remember you in our daily Masses and prayers. Together we share God’s blessings in today’s world!

In Christ Crucified,
Fr. Michael Higgins, C.P.
