Divine Office to Match Campaign Donations: Media Nun’s Year of Faith Video Program...
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Salt Lake City, UT (April 19-22, 2013) - Divine Office (DivineOffice.org) a Salt Lake City based, apostolate that serves a worldwide prayer community (over 40,000) by facilitating the praying of the Liturgy of the Hours, announced today their support of the Media Nun’s Year of Faith Video Program. The Divine Office Ministry plans to match 100% of the donations, up to $3,500, for the success of the cause. The Media Nun’s campaign is a cause designed to offer an educational online series on the Theology of the Body. “The daughters of St. Paul Chicago will deliver a six-session overview of Theology of the Body geared towards lay Catholics” (daughters of St. Paul, indiegogo.com Media Nun’s campaign). The project will be delivered, and recorded in Chicago, and the Sisters plan to stream the sessions live over the Internet. The series will also be recorded in high-definition video. You can learn more about the project as well as the campaign, by visiting the campaign’s project page at, http://igg.me/at/TOB-may
“The world needs to recover and appreciate what it means to "be a body" (not "have" a body). At a time when Catholic teachings in the areas of marriage, sexuality, health care and even the priesthood are routinely dismissed as relics of the past, it can be a real challenge for lay Catholics to understand the sacramental "vision" of the person that underlies those teachings, and even more of a challenge to communicate them clearly and confidently. We believe that the Theology of the Body not only meets that need amply, it puts the whole Catholic faith within reach in a way that transforms hearts” (daughters of St. Paul, indiegogo.com Media Nun’s campaign / http://igg.me/at/TOB-may).
The Divine Office Ministry feels an online resource for the Theology of the Body is essential and much needed, and they support the important work that is the focus of the Sisters of St. Paul, whom have taken a vow of poverty, and therefore rely on generous contributions and support from the community. In addition, the Sisters give themselves wholly everyday in selfless ways both for the community and their mission, which inspires and motivates Catholics everywhere. (Sister Ann is a well-known blogger, nunblog (http://romans8v29.blogspot.com), and is a member of the Sisters of St. Paul.) By joining Divine Office in supporting this cause, not only do the Sisters gain the support needed to achieve their goal and create a wonderful resource, but it is also a chance to give back to the Sisters, as well as support their purpose, which is to help “restore the world” through God’s work.
The campaign is designed to make it easy for anyone to contribute and show their support. Donations can be made as minimal as $5 and go up to, $2,000. Those who would like to register for the first session can do so now with a $10 donation. Details about donations, as well as incentives for campaign donations can also be found on the Media Nuns Year of Faith campaign project page (http://igg.me/at/TOB-may).
