The Christophers look towards the Blessed Mother during this time of crisis in the world. We keep her close to our hearts by praying the rosary and recalling her constant care and love for Christ. She remains our protector and will always watch over us and comfort us in times of trial. 

COVID-19 Statement

            The Christophers join with all people of good will during this time of crisis in the world in praying for an end to the Coronavirus. We are currently working remotely in order to keep our staff safe and do our part in limiting travel and social interaction. We are monitoring our mailings, and we want to let everyone know that our Spring Appeal is on its way. Our orders might be a bit backlogged due to the current situation, but we ask our donors for patience and to remember us during this 75th anniversary year of our organization.

            It was all the way back in 1945, at the close of World War II, that Father James Keller, M.M., founded The Christophers with the hope of inspiring people to discover their God-given talents and utilize them to make the world a better place. His message spoke to a generation of people who knew what it was to live through a time of crisis. That first generation of Christophers responded to Father Keller’s message with enthusiasm, and they have passed their positive attitude down to all of us today so that we may keep hope alive in all we do.

            Today, our nation faces a very different kind of crisis, but like those first Christophers, we are called to keep hope alive within our hearts because there is so much to look forward to in our future together. We pray for the health and safety of all people and especially for those most vulnerable to this illness, that they are protected, that all of the sick are healed, and that we find our way through this to a renewed period of health, peace, and prosperity in our nation and in the world.

            A special thanks to all who donate to The Christophers during this trying time. You empower us to remain a beacon of light to a world so in need of an uplifting message. God bless!
