Thank you all so much for your contributions. In the twilight hours of Saturday evening, we met then surpassed our $100,000 goal. The video playing now says it all: We are speechless with gratitude.
The second reading from Sunday, from Revelation, says, "The One who sat on the throne said, 'Behold, I make all things new.' " That is the feeling I have today. Feeling your generous support, we at NCR are ready to begin a new day. At Masses on Sunday in my parish we celebrated first Communions. What better sign of hope and newness is there than seeing our faith traditions passed on to new generations?
Your generosity gives me great hope that NCR will continue on its mission of reporting on the church and being a forum for the church, not only for the next fiscal year, but for the next generations. With your help and God's blessing, all things will be new.
If you missed the chance to contribute last week and want to show particular support for our Web efforts, our donation page is still open  and you can designate your gift for the Webathon. No donation is too small. NCR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Thank you very much for your support.
