Testimonials

Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles, California; President of United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

“I am happy to give my full support to Labouré…its efforts are so crucial for the Church today. Our Office for Vocations staff attended Labouré’s training program; they were profoundly impressed by the depth and strength of its spiritual and practical content. Many dioceses and religious orders have already benefited from the service Labouré provides…[which] enables young people to respond freely to the extraordinary call from God, so that His light may shine in our world.”

Sr. Kathryn Teresa Clemmer, Class of 2012/2013

“Fundraising is not just about raising money. It is about sharing my story with people and hearing their stories. It is about building relationships. It is about giving people an opportunity to become part of something beautiful. It is about being vulnerable so God can work through me. Honestly, I wouldn’t want it any other way.”

 

Sr. Josephine Garrett, Class of 2013

“It’s hard for me to imagine if Labouré didn’t exist because having student loans and needing to work with Labouré changed my life. And so I would even say today that I was grateful to have student loans.”

Aspirant Tara Clemens, Class of 2013

“God has emphasized to me once more how we are each part of the Body of Christ with different callings, gifts, and treasures. We are asked to love and support one another with what He has entrusted to us. The Society gives so much for vocations and to each one of us personally.

“I have been blessed time and again with the generous responses of friends and strangers alike. The kindness of our donors and benefactors to answer God’s invitation to support vocations like ours, will allow us to give ourselves to God while serving the Church and world. We will never forget you and remember each of you every day in prayer and thanksgiving.”

Aspirant Sarah Meier, Class of 2015

“It brings me to tears seeing the incredible work of the Holy Spirit as you, our benefactors, who have become our friends and our family, respond with such beautiful generosity to God’s nudge to help fulfill our desire to serve God! Your prayers, your investments, your love and support are working miracles, all for the glory of God, and for love of His Son, Jesus Christ! May shower His blessings upon you! What an utterly precious and priceless gift you give, as you bring us home where we will give all.”

Aspirant Brenden Bell, Class of 2015

“Thank you for all you have done for our vocations and may God bless you and give you all you need to fulfill your vocation in your state of life.”

Most Reverend George J. Lucas, Archbishop of Omaha, NE

“The Labouré model teaches biblically principled fundraising philanthropy for vocations, while giving candidates an opportunity to evangelize with their own stories of how the Lord has called them to a life of service. The Labouré program empowers candidates to resolve their own student loan debt and to make a choice to enter formation in freedom.”

Aspirant Alice Snee, Summer Class of 2016

“If someone is called to religious life or the priesthood and they’re not sure how to proceed or where to go, they should realize that God called the people who established the Labouré Society; and if God is putting it on your heart to reach out to them, there is a reason He is doing that right now. He recognizes this is part of your vocation, your discernment, and the journey that is going to bring you closer and closer to Him.”

Aspirant Mallory Deschamp, Summer Class of 2016

“To quote Mother Teresa, ‘We must first learn to raise funds of love, understanding, kindness, and peace. If we first seek the Kingdom of God the money will come.’ So… just focus on the Lord and His love rather than any financial barrier that is in place…”
