To our EXCLAIM! family:
We want to share with you that after many months of conversation and prayer, EXCLAIM! won't be taking place this summer. The necessary funding (nearly $100,000) to make this free event happen each summer becomes more challenging every year, and this summer simply won't be feasible.
It has been an incredible run. We are truly humbled how Toledo has rallied behind this little project we began in 2010.
Through EXCLAIM!, we have helped needy children get sponsored through Compassion International, we've fed the hungry, brought awareness to homelessness in our high schools, & educated people about the sex trafficking epidemic in our city.
We've brought 21 incredible bands to Toledo to lead worship from our stage.
We've witnessed remarkable moments where we've seen God's unconditional love in action.
We've gathered as a Diocesan community to celebrate Mass with two different Bishops and dozens of priests from around the city.
Thank you for seven awesome years of gathering at the Monsignor Schmit CYO Athletic Complex.
Please join us in prayer as we discern how God desires us to continue to evangelize the Glass City and EXCLAIM! his holy name.
