WHAT IS the PRAYER BRUNCH?

The Prayer Brunch launches Pilgrim Center of Hope ministries into the new year with partners like you, who are committed to spreading hope by guiding people into a deeper relationship with Christ and the Church!

This annual event gathers the faithful from across the region for exquisite brunch and a nationally-renowned speaker, to deepen attendees’ relationship with Christ, providing tools and resources for spiritual growth, while acting as the primary annual fundraiser for nonprofit Catholic evangelization ministry, Pilgrim Center of Hope.

Why Is This Benefit Event Necessary?

Dawn Eden speaks at the 2013 Catholic Women's Conference in San Antonio

GROWING MINISTRIES

Our Ministry of Conferences is growing to accommodate DOUBLE and QUADRUPLE previous Catholic Women’s Conference and Catholic Men’s Conference capacities!

More cities are requesting our help as they start their own conferences!

Evenings with Mary and Afternoon Teas with the Saints are expanding, reaching parishes at the edges of the Archdiocesan boundaries!

We are organizing more events than ever, so more promotional materials and professional services are needed.

MAINTAINING SACRED GROUND

The Pilgrim Center of Hope land and facilities are a former Teresian Convent. We need help maintaining this Catholic property as weather and age take their toll.

We do not have a completed property fence on the property. Neighboring property owners’ fences are dilapidated, and creating security concerns. We need help paying the $30,000 to finish a high-quality, long-lasting fence.

Tree and shrub trimming, mowing the acreage, and other landscaping are necessary.

EXCEPTIONAL STAFF

People are stunned by the small size of our staff: our 2 directors, 2 full-time paid employees, 3 part-time paid employees, and 1 volunteer staff member, whose work literally reaches tens of thousands of people for Christ every year.

For those on payroll, we rely on your generosity to pay a fair wage, as they dedicate their careers to the mission of evangelization.

ONGOING EXPENSES

From phone and Internet service, electricity and water, housekeeping services, and more… we rely on your support to “keep the boat afloat”!
