Share in the Mission. Become a Friend of the Disciples Today
Becoming a Friend will enhance your life and help support the mission that the Church has entrusted to our care. We count on the continued relationship of the Friends of the Disciples to provide prayers and financial support.
Ways in which we show gratitude to our Friends are many. On a daily basis, the entire religious order of the Disciples of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary (DCJM) prays for our Friends and benefactors. Every Saturday a Mass is offered in favor of your particular intentions. Additionally, you can participate closely in our mission by staying informed through semi-annual newsletters regarding our work globally. In addition, as the Disciples is a 501(c)3 non profit organization, your donations are fully tax deductible.
Your financial gifts support many needs we have, including:
- Formation of DCJM priests. Each year we use a significant portion of your donations to subsidize tuition and living expenses of our brothers in formation here in the United States and Spain. It takes seven to nine years to form our religious brothers so that they will better meet the needs of the Church once they are ordained priests. Your contributions are also used toward maintaining the actual houses of formation in the United States, Rome and Spain.
- Living and Transportation Expenses. Your donations help offset our basic expenses, such as insurance, travel, technology, vehicles, ongoing formation and spiritual retreats.
- Professional Fees. Friends’ contributions are also used toward covering occasional professional fees, such as translation fees, residence cards, and the development of technology resources such as this website.
- Publishing Costs. Disciples Books publishes titles written by DCJM priests, designed to strengthen and offer guidance on your journey of faith. The publication of these titles and their distribution is made possible by your support.
