Why Collaborate with Us?
If you are committed to furthering the Catholic faith, you have found the right ministry! Why SPO?
Their Spiritual Poverty
There are many people in need of Christ, but college students are more spiritually vulnerable than any other group. They are thrust into an environment of moral decay, and most are not prepared to resist this sort of lifestyle. SPO engages these students before they are absorbed by this secular vortex, and shows them the way to abundant life in Christ and His Church.
Our Distinctive Success
SPO proves year after year that our methods are extraordinarily successful, producing a quality of fruit that is unmatched: thoroughly formed alumni who become missionaries and leaders in the Church, in the home, and in the marketplace, transforming their environments for Christ.
As members of the Body of Christ, we are all called to participate in the Church's mission to evangelize.
St. Therese of Lisieux, the Carmelite nun who never travelled to a "mission" became the patron saint of missionaries through her prayers and sacrifices. She said, "Some give by going to the missions, some by giving to the missions. Without both there are no missions." In SPO, we know how to reach young people for Christ. We simply need collaborators like you to fuel our efforts through your prayers, financial partnership, and promotion.
Opportunities for Collaboration
SPO Missionaries labor tirelessly to provide the environment and opportunity for an encounter with Christ. Yet, we are still dependent on students' openness to God's work in their souls. Your prayers for the success of our outreach are invaluable. Please pray and even fast for SPO Missionaries and the students who are in such desperate need of the Gospel. Apart from the grace of God, we can do nothing: "Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127:1)
SPO has an effective and time-tested model of inviting young people to a relationship with Christ in His Church. As the saying goes, however, "no money, no mission." Our existence is dependent upon those who partner with us financially in this work. We frequently receive invitations to start SPO Chapters on campuses all over the country, but we cannot continue our growth without the necessary resources.
