A MESSAGE FROM TIM STAPLES
"God is up to something here!"
ABOUT THIS CAMPAIGN
It is the mission of Regina Angelorum Academy to promote and nurture the intellectual growth and talents of elementary school children through the time-tested classical liberal arts course of study. Students study and learn in a wholesome and rigorous academic environment. We count on the Forward in the Faith Benefit as our largest source of individual donations for Regina Angelorum Academy every year, providing our faculty and staff with the resources necessary to so they can continue to deliver an outstanding Catholic, Classical educational experience for their bright students!
With this global health crisis looming over us, our educational institutions are affected more than ever. That is why we held a "Virtual Benefit" to engage our community without putting anyone at risk.
However, even in these uncertain times, there is one thing that we as Christians can be certain of, and that is:
'we were made for times such as these'
When you give to this wonderful school you help lay the groundwork for future student achievement and success. And that is what this Forward in the Faith benefit is all about; always moving ‘forward’, with ‘faith’, despite the climate around us, and always together. We count on and appreciate your generosity to propel our work forward, and we ask you to please discern what you can contribute to this campaign.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Tim Staples is Director of Apologetics and Evangelization here at Catholic Answers, but he was not always Catholic. Tim was raised a Southern Baptist. Although he fell away from the faith of his childhood, Tim came back to faith in Christ during his late teen years through the witness of Christian televangelists. Soon after, Tim joined the Marine Corps.
During his four-year tour, he became involved in ministry with various Assemblies of God communities. Immediately after his tour of duty, Tim enrolled in Jimmy Swaggart Bible College and became a youth minister in an Assembly of God community. During his final year in the Marines, however, Tim met a Marine who really knew his faith and challenged Tim to study Catholicism from Catholic and historical sources. That encounter sparked a two-year search for the truth. Tim was determined to prove Catholicism wrong, but he ended up studying his way to the last place he thought he would ever end up: the Catholic Church!
He converted to Catholicism in 1988 and spent the following six years in formation for the priesthood, earning a degree in philosophy from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Overbrook, Pennsylvania. He then studied theology on a graduate level at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland, for two years. Realizing that his calling was not to the priesthood, Tim left the seminary in 1994 and has been working in Catholic apologetics and evangelization ever since.
