Tau Society

Ever wonder how the Casa keeps the lights on?

There are many open doors to renewal at the Casa thanks to the generous financial support of our community. Donations are essential to the healing work that is done here by friars, staff and over 800 volunteers. Making a multi-year pledge enables you to have a greater impact on RENEWING LIVES for ourselves, our community and our world.

Tau Society provides the Casa ongoing, operational support

Tau Society members make a five-year pledge of $1,000 or more per year. These unrestricted funds support the ongoing operations of the Casa, including new and continuing programs and ministries that provide opportunities for spiritual growth, healing, transformation and ways to serve others. Pledges are paid in increments throughout the year and are vital to sustaining the Casa’s commitment to always be a nurturing place where relationships come first and all are welcome. Social engagements are planned throughout the year for members to gather in fellowship.

Why the Tau?

In the first millennium, the simple Greek letter “T” or “Tau” became a symbolic reminder of Christ’s crucifixion. Later, it would become emblematic of St. Francis’ charge to rebuild the Church with humility, joy and love. Indeed, the Tau was the only mark St. Francis used to sign his writings and one he traced on himself before every action in God’s name. In the Tau, we see Christ’s sacrifice and unending love for us; we see the silhouette of a friar’s robe and his service to others, and we see centuries of triumph that led millions to God through the simple Franciscan principle of welcoming and serving all.

If you have questions or would like to become a member of the Tau Society, call Sarah at 480.355.0357 or Sue at 480.355.5631. You can also fill out the form below and someone will contact you.
