The Church Explosively Alive

Did you know that 40% of North America adults aged 25-40 identify as having no affiliation with the Church? This decline in the Christian faith is a disturbing trend. [i]


Our dominant secular culture is pushing our faith to the margins of society, and leading younger generations farther and farther away from God. However, there is good news! God has given the Companions of the Cross a unique role in reversing this alarming decline.  


I invite you to take a moment to read The Church Explosively Alive brochure included in this package. The document tells the story of how God is using the Companions of the Cross as part of his plan to wake up the Church “with the power of the Holy Spirit and shake the earth and the nations with its dynamic presence”. (Fr. Bob Bedard, CC Founder)


We are embarking on the most ambitious fundraising effort in the history of our community. I invite you to prayerfully consider making a special one-time donation to The Church Explosively Alive campaign. Or might you consider a small increase in your monthly donation for a while?  Every gift makes a difference, thank you in advance for your generosity.


Yours in the hearts of Jesus and Mary,


Fr. Roger Vandenakker
