All In for Ablaze

Hello everyone!

As you may know, Ablaze Ministries has been serving the youth and families at Bishop Louis Reicher and St. Louis Catholic Church for three years now. You probably recognize us as the fun-loving “adults” who sometimes get to act like kids while spending time with your teens! We count it as such a gift and a joy to get to do so. While campus ministry and parish ministry is our main in-person ministry, Ablaze also runs ministries for families and youth ministers worldwide, creating resources and providing a community for individuals just like yourselves who are striving to grow closer to Jesus every day.

This year, we’d like to invite you to join us in our mission with a monthly financial gift. All-in for Ablaze is an annual two-day digital giving event. This year, the event will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 5th and 6th. We are working to raise $50,000 and know we won’t be able to do it without your help. As St. John Bosco said, “It is not enough to love the young, they must know they are loved.” Join us in our mission today with a tax-deductible donation and serve the youth, families, and youth ministers of the world - helping them to know they are loved and equipping them to do the same for others.

We look forward to your being a part of this mission with us! Thank you!

In Christ,

Alycia Frech, Alyssa Trutter, Brandon Jaquish, and Greg Vanderheiden
