Will You Help Us Defend the Church?

I know when Claudette is about to give me bad news.
She has that unmistakable look on her face.

I sat back, waiting on the worst.

“Catholic Exchange couldn’t cover expenses again this month,” she said.

Just six weeks ago, I resolved to not cut back on content.  In fact, I am committed to investing even more in developing resources that offer our readers practical ways to integrate the Catholic Faith and the liturgy into their lives.

We need to raise $5,000 each month to continue offering the reliably Catholic news and commentary, prayers and meditations, and inspiring videos you see on Catholic Exchange each day.  If I can’t raise this amount, then I will be forced to reduce content at a time when our society desperately needs the saving message of Christ and His Church.

I’m asking you to make a donation NOT so we can cover our costs.  I’m asking you to help us expand so we can do even more to promote and defend the teachings of the Church, all while developing resources that will help you in your pursuit of holiness.

If Catholic Exchange can raise $25,000 in the next week, we will launch a major expansion in content over the next four months.  Here’s what we’ll do with your help . . .

  • Offer even more original articles that report world news from a Catholic perspective.  We’ll not only share with you what’s happening–we will tell you the Church’s response!
  • Expand our series of deeply informative articles exploring the roots of Christianity, Church doctrine, and the Church’s critical role in world civilization.
  • We’ll collect scores of resources that will help you make better confessions . . . get more out of Holy Communion . . . pray better . . . find God’s will . . . and so much more.
  • Produce substantive resources for parents so they can learn tips for helping kids behave during Mass . . . ways of integrating the Rosary and prayers into family life . . . how the saints recommend disciplining children . . . and countless other tips for raising good and holy children.
  • We’ll collect time-tested advice from saints and spiritual leaders to help poor souls who are stuggling to overcome sins such as addiction to drugs . . . pornography . . . same-sex attraction . . . impatience . . . greed . . . sloth . . . and more.

We can get to work on all these exciting new projects tomorrow, but it requires your generous financial support.

Will you visit our secure page and make a donation to Catholic Exchange today? Will you donate $10, $25, $50, $75, $100, $250, $500, or even $1,000 or $5,000 today?

And when you make your donation, will you consider becoming a monthly contributor by choosing that option on the second line of our donation form? Regular, ongoing support provides us with the stability needed to advance our online ministry.

At Catholic Exchange, we view Catholicism as a worldview, not just a set of religious practices.  Politics, business, family life, and culture cannot be properly understood apart from faith.  Instead, they are brought to their proper perfection when illuminated by the fullness of Catholic truth.

This is precisely what we are trying to do at Catholic Exchange.  But we cannot do this alone.  We need your help—and we need it today.

Please make your tax-deductible donation today—and please be as generous as you possibly can.

Yours in Christ,

Charlie McKinney, President

    Honest question: Wouldn’t it be a good time for the U.S. Conference of Bishops to provide solid funding for advocacy sites like Catholic Exchange? Given that we live in such dire times, I would think that the U.S. Bishops and the Vatican would be throwing money at groups like Catholic Exchange, Catholic Answers, and many other Catholic social media sites willing to take on the culture of death.

    Our adversaries never seem to lack billions in taxpayer funding and investor funding to attack Christian groups and values. Shouldn’t the Church be doing the same to defend the culture of life?

    I will certainly do nothing to keep this outfit running. Most of the article writers mislead, misguide, trick readers into holding concepts and ideas that are far from true Christianity. I am en educated Catholic and the stuff peddled here embarrases me. The only people liable to agree with the idiocies peddled here are Catholics who nothing of the real nistory of our religion and are clieless of the scandals of the Vatican, past and present.

    So why are you here? As for being “en educated Catholic”, you may want to take a clue from some of these writers “who nothing of the real nistory of our religion and are clieless” and work on your grammar. The rest of us will continue to read all the information available to us and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance.

    If I have already set up an amount and want to change it, how would I go about doing that?
