Serve the Young: Holiday Appeal
After Fr. Steve's passing, the Salesian Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry established the Rev. Stephen Schenck Memorial Youth Ministry Fund. To mark the 5th anniversary of Fr. Steve's passing, and in honor of him, we would like to ask you to make a donation to this fund. As many of you already know, despite our best efforts to keep program costs low, there are always youth and young adults who are unable to afford our program costs. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial support to our deserving, but financially challenged program participants. Furthermore, the added blessing of this fund is that your donations this year will continue to assist youth and young adults for many years to come. In honor of Fr. Steve's 5th anniversary, I ask you to consider answering this appeal for donations.
As a token of gratitude and appreciation, the first one hundred donors will receive a copy of the one and only CD that Fr. Steve was able to produce of his wonderful, youthful music. Through his music and even more so through the many lives that he impacted during his earthly life, Fr. Steve's legacy continues to live on. Please, enjoy and share his music with as many others as you can!
To answer this appeal, you can send a check made payable to Salesian Youth Ministry or use the Paypal link provided at the end of this e-mail to donate $5, $10, $20 or whatever your means allow! Above all, I ask you to pray for the young that we serve, our teams and volunteers, our office staff, and, of course, for me, too.
I thank you for your commitment, hard work and faith, all of which continues to inspire me in my Salesian priesthood. Know of my prayers and appreciation for all that you do for the sake of the young. Be well, happy Thanksgiving and God bless.
