Dear friends and kindred in Christ Jesus our Lord:
On September 28th, 2019, St. Augustine’s Chapel celebrated 60 years of ministry to the students, faculty, and staff at the University of Kentucky. First, we must thank God for calling us to serve at UK and in the wider Lexington communities, and for strengthening us to do this work for the past 60 years and to prepare for our next stage of ministry.
Second, the St. A’s community thanks you! Over the years, we have relied on on the generous support of our alumni, the Episcopal and Lutheran faculty and staff of UK, and those in our community who choose to support campus ministry. Thank you for all your prayers and support throughout the years. Thank you for making this ministry possible.
So how can you continue to support campus ministry? This year, to celebrate our 60th anniversary, we are holding a “60 for 60” campaign. We are asking everyone who is able to give $60, or a multiple of $60, to honor our diamond anniversary and to honor the memory of all the saints, past and present, who have made this ministry what it is, and to keep it lively and strong for the saints yet to come.
Please, would you take a moment right now to donate $60 to St. A’s by visiting our secure donation portal, hosted by the Diocese of Lexington? On that page, select St. Augustine’s Chapel from the drop down menu marked “Select a fund,” fill in the amount you’d like to donate, and push the “Continue” button to complete your donation.
St. A’s is a growing and vital ministry at a critical point in Christian history. With your help and support, we can engage, form, and encourage a new generation of Christian leaders, continue to be a place of refuge for all students, staff, and faculty at UK, and bring the love of God in Christ Jesus through the Episcopal and Lutheran traditions to the University of Kentucky. Thank you!
Grace and peace,
