Giving Tuesday Preview

"Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ"

What is #ChargerChapel?

#ChargerChapel is Cor Jesu’s theme for the international day of giving known as Giving Tuesday.  This year we will be raising funds to build our new chapel!  And, we have secured matching gifts so, if you make a donation of any size to Cor Jesu on November 27, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar!  If you work for a company that matches gifts, your gift will be tripled!

Why a Chapel?

Cor Jesu's current chapel is a small gathering space.  As part of our mission and vision to create a community of young women who accept and share God's love, we plan to build a chapel large enough to accomodate a full-class Mass.
