While God had hand selected and prepared Mary to be the mother of Jesus Christ, His Son, was it possible that Mary heard this news with uncertainty, anxiety and fear? An unfriendly Roman empire, the shame of being an unmarried mother, and the doubt of being able to care for a baby...all of these worries very likely hit Mary like a ton of bricks in those first moments..

But what was Mary's response?

"Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word."

Mary embraced the opportunity along with the worry and accepted the role of a lifetime.

Right now, how many of us are feeling uncertain, anxious and afraid? COVID-19 has the undivided attention of the entire world and life as we knew it has changed. Churches are closed and ministries are no longer open to the public. Businesses are shutting down,...

Petrus Introduces Petrus Annual Manual


By Andrew Robison, President of Petrus Development


Petrus Development has been working with Catholic ministries around the country since 2004 to build sustainable development programs, and we are pleased to announce that we recently served our 100th ministry. While I am proud of this good work, and know that tens of thousands of lives have been impacted by the efforts of these ministries, I can’t help but feel the same way as the priests who we serve…I know there is so much more work to be done and many more souls to be won for Christ.

It is for this reason that we have developed a brand new program specifically designed to help Catholic campus ministries launch new development efforts and get them started on a path to success and sustainability.
