This project was successfully funded on July 15, 2012.
About this project
On Friday, May 25, 2011 our brothers Jerome Augustine Zeiler, Jordan Joseph Schmidt, Augustine Marie Reisenauer, Michael Dominic O’Connor, and Justin Marie Brophy were ordained to the priesthood.
We simply need to hire an editor to finish the DVD and do some photoshop work.
HOW CAN YOU HELP US?
Because of how Kickstarter works, if we don't reach our goal of $2k, we won't get to keep any of the money. We can't do this without you! Here's how you can help us...
1) Like us on Facebook, then share the Kickstarter Link with your FB friends, asking them to pledge.
2) Make a small donation to help us finish the film!
3) Send a personal email to each friend or family member who would like a copy of this DVD.
Can we exceed the goal?
Yes! The more funds we raise, the more interviews we can add to this project and spread the word about what's happening with the Dominican friars!
Below are the trailers to some of the our other DVD's which we are also offering as thank you gifts to our benefactors.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH! :)
