How you can donate and help LIGHT ONE CANDLE

How You Can Help


Since Father James Keller, M.M., founded The Christophers in 1945, we've had the opportunity to share our positive messages of faith and hope through our News Notes, radio and TV programs, leadership courses, and student contests. Christopher literature and materials have been donated to prisons, hospitals, and the military through chaplains across the United States. In that time, some of the most prestigious members of the community and media/entertainment industry have been honored with Christopher Awards. For nearly seven decades, we have been able to continue Father Keller’s goal of spreading HOPE and LIGHT because of the generosity of Christopher Friends like you.

      There are several ways you can make a donation to help support The Christophers.
