Annual Giving Campaign
Dear Friends in Christ,
Here at Montserrat, we know that many people hunger for a deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They yearn to live as committed mature disciples. We know that offering space for silence and prayer, and time for reflection and listening, helps.
What we do at Montserrat is transformative in the lives of those we serve. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola are the heart of Montserrat’s ministry. When people come through the Exercises, each person encounters a deeper awareness of Jesus’ love and presence. Our retreatants, from a variety of faith traditions, discover how to journey more closely with Jesus in the practice of their faith and the experience of their lives. For many people, Montserrat has become their spiritual home.
Montserrat’s beautiful thirty-nine acre campus provides safe and comfortable space for prayer. Our staff is dedicated to serving the needs of Montserrat’s people; tending details of meals and housekeeping so our retreatants have the time needed for rest and reflection. Montserrat’s annual operating budget is near one million dollars. Retreats and programs provide seventy-five percent of the budget income. The remaining twenty-five percent relies on the Annual Giving Campaign, which directly supports the operating budget for facility upkeep, salaries, kitchen and housekeeping needs, communication tools, and so much more.
We embrace Montserrat’s mission trusting in God’s providence. We also must trust in you, the Montserrat donor. Our donors believe in the importance of the work. Donations are received as an expression of love and as a reminder that God wants Montserrat’s ministry to be fruitful. All gifts are important to the continuance of Montserrat’s ministry. Your gift is important. You are important. Thank you to those who offer financial support to Montserrat.

Blessings in the Lord,
