Why make a donation to the Community of the Beatitudes?
Supporting the Community of the Beatitudes means supporting the mission of the Church in all the countries where the Community is established, through its evangelization outreach (running retreats, camps, pilgrimages, apostolates for young people, publications) and its work in the field of charity and compassion (foster homes, orphanage, hospital, development projects).
Each year the Community of the Beatitudes is delighted to have around 200 young people in training, of which about a hundred are in the initial stages of formation which precede the temporary engagement for the laity and the temporary vows for the consecrated. Among them, the Community welcomes between 30 and 40 new vocations each year for the first stage of integration into community life called “internship”. The others are divided between the postulancy (or probation for the laity), the novitiate and the period of commitment or temporary vows during which formation continues. Each year, around 30 brothers study for the priesthood.
It is the responsibility of the Community to properly prepare the young people who knock on its door for their commitment to serve Christ. This training is essential… but it comes at a cost! All the more so as costs related to daily life and health insurance for young vocations are added to those of the training itself. The initial training lasts from 3 to 6 years, according to the individual calling of each one, at an annual cost of 14,000 € per person. This is why the Community needs your support. That is why the Community needs your support.
How to donate to the Community ?
Donating online is convenient, fast and secure.
We can only offer this online solution to a French account. For fiscal reasons, the Community of the Beatitudes relies on the National Foundation for the Clergy, which transfers the donations in full. Please note that the Community is only informed of your online donation by the Clergy Foundation twice a year in January and August, which is why, unfortunately, we can only personally thank our donors with a few months delay.
