MAKING A CONTRIBUTION TO THE LAY CISTERCIANS OF GETHSEMANI ABBEY
We request your annual support check to LCG.   While the majority of our efforts are to enhance our relationship with God – and to this end place great emphasis on contemplation, meditation and reading of sacred works – another piece of our dedication and devotion as lay Cistercians is our financial support of LCG.
LCG is a 501(c)(3) organization.  Our financial needs are modest, but contributions from members and friends enable us to support and enhance our effectiveness and devotion to the Cistercian charism. Your offerings assist our newsletter costs, costs for the website, annual retreats, monthly cards to monks who are remembered in our monthly prayer ministry, and our membership in and active participation in the International Association of Lay Cistercian Communities.
Your prayers and generous financial support are welcome!
