One of our favorite things to do is visit churches, schools, or other organizations to speak. In our power-packed presentations we challenge people to answer the call of Jesus to “make disciples of all nations”. Our talks encourage the audience to put their faith in practice in practical ways to build up the Church.
Some of Our Presentations
The season of Lent is a beautiful time of the liturgical year in which the Church calls us to live out our Catholic faith in three practical ways. In this talk we challenge the audience to get into the spirit of the season by praying, fasting, and giving alms all of which help to benefit our mission and further our cause of building up the Church.
Building Up Bukoba
In this talk we tell the story of how our campaign Building Up Bukoba came to be. The audience will go on a journey to rural Tanzania through a multimedia presentation. We’ll introduce them to our friend Father Swit and will encourage them to become members and contribute to the mission.
Custom Tailored Talks
If there is a specific topic you would like us to present on to your organization, just ask. Our mission is faith formation and we love to bring the message of the Gospel to the world. At your request we can speak on any topic in the Catechism of the Catholic Church from catechesis and evangelization, to prayer and the spiritual life.
How We Collect Donations
If your organization prefers to pay a speaking fee directly in the form of a donation, we would gladly come to make our presentation. Choose from any of the talks above and contact us to schedule a date and time.
For schools and religious education programs we prefer to get the kids involved in the fundraising by sending home with them a plastic candle holder they can fill up with change usually over the course of 4-6 weeks. After the specified time we can return to collect them. They candle holder is a symbol of prayer, which we hope will inspire not only financial donations, but also ongoing prayers for our mission and the people we serve.
Sale of Merchandise
All we really require for the presentation is a microphone and a few tables for us to offer our merchandise for sale which consists of t-shirts, canvas tote bags, rosaries, and our signature hand-painted prayer rocks. Sometimes our speakers will offer their books for sale of which a certain percentage of the profits will be donated to The ROCK Association.
What to Expect
Our presentations are always dynamically-delivered and spirit-filled. We don’t lecture, we engage the audience in a conversation. Our talks can be tailored to last from anywhere from 15-45 minutes. After the talk, we like to get the audience gathered into small groups to continue reflecting with a few discussion questions, but of course this is optional.
