When Bishop David Zubik held his first meeting with the board of directors of Our Campaign for the Church Alive!, Inc., nearly two years ago, he had an important message to deliver.

Ashley was desperate. Twenty-one years old and two months pregnant, she had just dropped out of college. Her father was urging her to get an abortion. He believed having a baby now would ruin her life.

Luke Sutton is fascinated with flowers and gardening. Ask him any question—he’s a walking encyclopedia when it comes to plants, according to his father.
These days, it’s Luke himself who’s growing, thanks in large part to Saint Anthony School Programs which serve children with autism, Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities. Soon, more young people will benefit, thanks to a significant gift to Our Campaign for The Church Alive!
