Invest In The Future  – Support Bear Catholic

“The future starts today, not tomorrow.”  –  Blessed Pope John Paul II

The Bear Catholic Campus Ministry is made possible through the generous financial gifts of parishioners of St. Peter parish, parents, alumni and friends.  We rely upon the generosity of others who have a passion for Campus Ministry to sustain the excellence of the Ministry at UNC and Aims.  Please prayerfully consider partnering with Bear Catholic and help us minister to the future leaders of the Church and society.  Together we will reach all Catholic students at UNC and Aims with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Your support of Bear Catholic ministry fosters an atmosphere of missionary culture at the University of Northern Colorado and Aims Community College, in Greeley, CO. Our ministry invites college students into a relationship with Jesus Christ by specifically inviting them to participate in the Catholic Church and live out the Sacraments as established by Christ Himself. It is then our goal to train and equip college students to invite others to pursue this same goal, and to develop into adults who are actively involved in their parishes, helping to revitalize the Catholic Community in the United States. Bear Catholic students are entering into mission while they are in college, with 30+ active students entering into mission work in 2015. and graduates are entering into mission as leaders at their parishes, as well as dozens of alumni who work in ministry fields for their Full-Time Careers.

Thank you for your continued support. Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
