CRL Announces Its Sowing Seeds Campaign

By Catholic Rural Life on November 14, 2016


For the first time in its 93-year history, Catholic Rural Life is launching a fundraising campaign.

The Church in rural America is at a critical juncture with many challenges facing those who labor on behalf of Christ.

These challenges include the stretching of priests over huge geographical areas and multiple parishes, as well as the lack of financial and human resources to support outreach and discipleship efforts in many communities. The need to train and equip rural lay leaders for the new evangelization has never been greater.

Catholic Rural Life is poised to inspire, educate, and advocate on behalf of rural Catholics.

But we need your help.

Catholic Rural Life’s programs, from helping form and support Catholic leaders in the agricultural industries, to preparing the next wave of rural priests, to training and equipping lay leaders to help adult formation in their local parishes, cannot happen without your generous support.


Please consider donating to the Sowing Seeds campaign today.  A donation of any size will help fund the programs that are so needed in rural America, helping to build a sustainable future and strengthening our Catholic Faith.  Visit our Donation page to give securely online.
