Aquinas Institute of Theology is celebrating two-fold with both the acknowledgement of its of vital supporters, and for the generosity of these supporters in making Fr. David Caron, O.P.'s, 25th anniversary of ordination a great success earlier in the year!
A 25th anniversary mailing was sent to donors of the Presidential Inauguration, friends and family of Fr. Caron, and certain Dominican circles, giving all individuals the option to:
1). Share a special message with Fr. Caron
2). Pray a Dominican Prayer of Vocation
3). Make a financial contribution to the school
While Aquinas Institute's original fundraising goal was set at $5,000 for this project, the response was much more positive! Through this campaign, Aquinas Institute acquired 56 new donors and a total of 98 gifts. Fifty additional individuals participated by responding with personal messages, notes and commitments of prayer.
The final monetary profit raised for Aquinas Institute through this campaign was $38,316. We would like to once again thank all supporters of both Fr. Caron and Aquinas Institute of Theology for their generosity and thoughtfulness in both this regard - and in the future!
