Hands And Hearts Together
Welcome to the web page of The Piarist Fathers Compassion Challenge, which is an annual campaign sponsored by The Piarist Fathers Province of the United States and Puerto Rico.
During the 2015-2016 academic year, the Piarist Fathers started “The Piarist Fathers Compassion Challenge”. As members of a religious order, we take four vows: poverty, chastity, obedience and education of youth, especially the poor. As a religious order, we have a number of ministries and some special projects, which we undertake annually. The success of our ministries and projects relies heavily upon the financial generosity of people like you – our alumni, parishioners, co-workers, relatives and friends.
The Compassion Challenge focuses upon various projects of importance in the Province: The Adopt-a-Seminarian Project, The House of Formation of St. Joseph Calasanz Project, The Piarist Fathers Latin Mission Project, The Piarist Fathers Puerto Rico Mission Project, The Piarist Fathers Language Studies Project, The Houston Initiative, The Guatemala Mission Project, The Colegio Calasanz Tuition Assistance Program, The Piarist School Tuition Assistance Program, Cuba, St. Anne, St. Joachim and St. Joachim Academy Project, The Calasanz Movement Project and The Retired Piarist Fathers Project.
The Challenge is an opportunity for the Piarist Fathers to share with you some of our projects and ministries. It allows us to convey our need for your financial support by sharing brief descriptions and proposed budgets for each project. Your decision to support one or more of these projects with a donation will make a difference.
