   GET INVOLVED

Evangelization is an integral part of the mission of the Church, sent by Christ into the world to preach the Gospel to every creature (Mk 16,15). The Church carries out this duty above all in her liturgical life, but she is constrained to fulfill it also in all the ways and by all the means which are available to her to use as she abides among the people of each continent. The Diocese of Sagar as a young and dynamic missionary diocese situated in the central part of India is carrying out the evangelization work through different ministries. You are requested to involve generously with your prayerful and financial assistance for the success and fruitfulness of the different ministries of the diocese.

SPONSOR A MISSION STATION

Just as Jesus labored in the Father’s vineyard by teaching and healing, we too are called to serve the Lord and one another.

Our “Sponsor a Mission Station” is an opportunity for every member of our faith family to share in the pastoral and missionary work of Christ by funding the important programs and ministries of the Diocese of Sagar. This critical operating support enables the Diocese to provide the different mission stations of the Diocese with a wide variety of essential services that change lives –and souls. Contributions to “Sponsor a Mission Station” provide critical support for outreach programs especially evangelization and pastoral work of the Diocese of Sagar. Through our diocesan ministries we partner with parishes to form compassionate lay ministers and knowledgeable catechists; offer family enrichment opportunities; support lifelong faith formation; reach out to college students; and bring the love of Christ to the hungry, the homeless, and the vulnerable.

There are many easy and effective ways to further the good work of our mission stations through your valuable contributions. You can make an annual gift or contributions spread over the year that provides vital operating support for all of our diocesan mission stations, or you may wish to leave a legacy gift in support of a specific ministry that has touched your life.

Sponsors may be individuals, families, organizations or parishes. You are invited to select the contribution level that best suits you.

SPONSOR A SEMINARIAN

We invite you to help a seminarian say “yes” to Christ’s call to serve the Church as a priest.

“As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, Jesus saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea – for they were fishermen. And he said to them, Follow me...” Matthew 4:18-19

Can you lend a helping hand to a future priest?

The next best thing to having a priest in the family could be to adopt one and to have your family in the hands of a priest who, every day, as he offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, remembers you and your dear ones, who have helped make his priesthood possible.

By helping him become a priest today, you will help build up the Church of the 21st century. You will enable him to touch tens of thousands of souls over the course of his priesthood.

These dedicated men are the future of our church! The continued growth in the number of vocations to our community, along with the increased hunger for authentic Catholic spirituality, and the creation of new ministries, are all signs of renewal in the Church.

The Lord has blessed us with very committed and capable people to carry out his mission in the world, but we are now at the point where your sponsorship will be critical if we are to continue to meet these growing needs and expectations.
Jesus and his disciples depended on those who provided for them while they devoted their lives to prayer and the ministry of the Word. Following in his footsteps, we too are dependent on others and we humbly invite you to invest in the future of the priesthood through ongoing spiritual and financial support of the Companions of the Cross.  
As demands grow, so do the costs. Today, more than ever, we need your continued prayers and your financial support to continue God’s work. We simply do not have the necessary resources to pay for the education of our seminarians.
Academic and related formation costs can amount to as much as $3,000 / €2,200 / `1,65,000 a year, but I am sure you will agree that this is a small price to pay to help a devoted Christian attain his calling to the priesthood so that he can serve the Church and bring Christ to thousands of souls.
Your support and financial assistance will be a strong reassurance for us, a concrete sign of the Lord’s blessing on all that we strive to accomplish on behalf of His Church and the work of the Gospel.

SPONSOR A CHILD

The joy of giving is inexplicable. The smile of a needy child, having received a favor from you, is familiar. He may not remember you; yet the Lord will have written your name in His Sacred Heart.
Through “Sponsor a Child” program, you have an opportunity to experience that joy of giving. There are orphan children, differently abled children (physically and mentally) and poor tribal children under the care of dedicated missionaries in the diocese of Sagar. And they need your help – both financial as well as spiritual.
By sponsoring a child:

1. You would contribute financially to the education, food & shelter, medicine & clothing, etc. of a child for a fixed period of time.

2. You will receive annually, the school progress report as well as a fresh photograph of the child whom you are sponsoring.

3. You could send him/her letters on his/her birthday, Xmas or any other occasion.

4. If you wish so, you could also come and visit the child.

5. In return, the children and the missionaries who take care of them would pray for you and for your family in their daily Mass.
