The Big Give S.A. – How Mother Teresa helped us begin (Updated!)
Our founders wrote a letter to Mother Teresa after they had re-discovered Jesus and their Catholic faith in San Antonio. Could you bring your sisters to San Antonio, Mother? – they asked. She responded yes, but — she needed a bishop’s invitation. She encouraged them to continue working in evangelization.
We’ll meet with our bishop, then, they decided.
Archbishop Flores’ words could have come straight from Mother Teresa’s mouth:
Mother and her sisters do wonderful work… but you are already here! What about you? What will you do?
The following year, thanks to help from many San Antonio locals, Tom and Mary Jane Fox founded a small ministry called Pilgrim Center of Hope. Today, twenty-two years later, that small initiative has brought hope to hundreds of thousands of individuals and families.
Tuesday, May 5, 2015, a project called The Big Give S.A. encouraged donations to more than 800 San Antonio non-profit organizations. Monetary prizes were awarded to non-profits based on number of donors.
Friends, thank you for your 34 gifts during The Big Give S.A. that will help us continue what Mother Teresa encouraged. If you missed this special campaign, we invite you to give to the Pilgrim Center of Hope online, with a staff member over the phone (210) 521-3377, or in-person at our office. This ministry would simply not exist without you!
“Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love…”
– St. Teresa of Calcutta, Mother Teresa
