You Can Help Catholic Exchange Reach More Souls

“Catholic Exchange helped bring me into the Catholic Church.”

I get emails like this all the time. Each day we receive thousands of visitors who are searching for answers, seeking to renew their Faith, and to grow in their love of Christ. And more often than not, they are actually moved by spending a few minutes on our site and finding their way back into the Church.

These souls are why I put in the hours, and why Catholic Exchange is more needed now than ever before.

We know that our readers are on a pilgrimage — because we are too!  All of us at Catholic Exchange desire to grow in holiness. Heaven is our destination, and just like you, we need spiritually enriching writings to help us grow in our Faith and to keep us on the path to holiness.

That’s why every article we run has to personally touch us in some way. If we feel that the article makes us a bit more holy, or if it oriented us toward Christ, then we make it available to you, too.

But no matter how many souls our good work is bringing to heaven, it simply isn’t possible without the financial support of our readers. That’s why we have to turn to you from time to time and ask you to support our important work.

Our partnership with Sophia Institute Press allows us to cover the bare basics, but we need to raise at least $100,000 per year to keep this site humming and to bring you the great content day after day.

We have grown tremendously at CE. Our Facebook page is three times what it was a mere couple months ago, and we are reaching well over half a million people each month. This is done on a tight budget and through the hard work of only a handful of people. With your support, we can continue to bring the love of Christ to so many and to even expand our reach.

If you can visit our secure online donation form and give a gift of $10, $25, $50, $100, or even $250 or $500, you will give the gift of Evangelization to so many. It might even be your neighbor or someone who could be at your parish. We have little doubt that future saints read us each day.

The most important way you can give.

Consider also becoming a monthly donor so that we can plan our content and hopeful expansion. If you can, think about donating $5, $10, $15, $25, or even $50 per month. Every bit helps.

Choose “monthly donation” from the dropdown menu on this page to set up an automatic monthly donation.

Whether or not you’re able to give, please keep us in your prayers. They do much to keep our focus and we benefit greatly by the thousands of prayers we receive.

Our goal at Catholic Exchange is to get to heaven, and we hope that through our work you can get there as well.
