I’m a big believer in learning from the experts… I even tell my team that it’s all about learning from the best.

Who are these experts? They are the heroes of the Catholic Church. Take for example Saint Pope Pius X, who led the Church in the early 20th century.

In his encyclical, IL FERMO PROPOSITO, he offers us a blueprint for taking action. He explains that an apostolate must “enlarge its sphere and multiply its results.”

Often, this requires you to fundraise… and that’s what this week’s blog is all about.

I’ve been learning about Pope Pius X this week and how he inspired the laity to take action. In 1905, he saw the “writing on the wall” and knew that the laity had to step up and take action. He also knew that their actions had to be aligned to Christ, therefore he wrote the encyclical “Il Fermo Proposito” which lays out a blueprint. I found it most helpful with fundraising because staying focused on Truth is essential. . #Catholic #catholics #catholichurch #vatican #bible #saint #catholicyouth #pope #popefrancis #catholicmemes #catholicmom #sacredscripture #tridentinemass #holytrinity #lifeofacatholic #Catholicfaith #catholicfamily #jesus #FaithfulRomanCatholic #mothermary #catholicrosary #holyfamily #cathechismofthecatholicchurch #catholicfaith #catholiclife #saint #saints #romancatholic

Brice was born and raised Catholic. After enjoying a successful career in technology consulting with Accenture and PriceWaterhouseCoopers in cities across the United States (Dallas, San Francisco, Paris, Abu Dhabi, and London) around the world, he left it to help his Catholic diocese in London, England with a fundraising campaign. The campaign went on to raise over $60 million, the largest sum ever raised for the diocese and in the United Kingdom.

Learning from professional fundraisers, he figured out the basics and then left the diocese to focus on what he loves most: building Catholic charities that change the culture, save lives, and save souls.

Brice currently lives in Texas and travels the world helping Catholics fundraise. This website is where he shares what he is doing and how he is raising funds for Catholic causes and missions. That way you can move more quickly with your next appeal.
