A Mission of Hope for 30 Years

Impact Report for the Calendar Year 2023

Thirty years of work and faithfulness to our mission has resulted in these accomplishments for the year 2023.

Parish Outreach

In 2023, we personally called 97 urban churches and 47 rural and mission churches in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, learning about their faith formation staff and welcoming them to partake in resources at no cost or low cost (donation-based) to support their evangelizing mission.

Creating Encounters with Christ

Connecting Faith & Reason

Our "Who Is the Man of the Shroud?" exhibition at Pilgrim Center of Hope opened to the public in 2023.

Building Up Individuals, Families

Hope Without Boundaries

A Place of Refreshment

In 2023, we received significant contributions that allowed us to build a parking lot -- to accommodate our increasing number of visitors, as well as extensive landscaping, irrigation for flowers and trees, and a general face-lift of the entire property.

Building Up the Body of Christ

Pilgrim Center of Hope built up the Body of Christ in 2023 through three authentic journeys of faith, with small groups who are now sharing the fruits of their experience in their communities.

Trusted Ministry

Celebrating thirty years in 2023, Pilgrim Center of Hope had our anniversary celebration "Rejoice In Hope" and raised 100% of the event's fundraising goal to create a solid foundation for the coming year's ministry.

Our donors demonstrated their confidence in our mission with a 67% increase in Donor Advised Fund (DAF) and Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) donations from 2022-2023.

I know that you have assisted so many to become closer in relationship with our Lord, the Saints and in knowledge of our Catholic Faith. We hold the Pilgrim Center of Hope Team in prayer and trust that our Lord will continue to guide your good work.
