Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve you as I should,
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and ask not for reward,
Save that of knowing that I do your most holy will.
Jack had this prayer from St. Ignatius taped to his bedroom door.
It was the last thing he saw before starting his day.
Your generous donation will support the mission of the Warriors for Peace: to oppose the evil of gun violence by promoting peaceful change, one life at a time. Your donation may be used to support the following funds.
Jack Shockley Peacemakers Scholarship Fund
This Fund has been established with the Catholic Community Foundation under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Each year, the Archdiocese will select a worthy graduate of one of the Notre Dame Ace Academy grade schools in Indianapolis—St. Philip Neri, Holy Cross, Central Catholic, and Holy Angels—to receive a scholarship that will enable the recipient to continue his or her Catholic education at one of the Archdiocesan high schools. We hope not only to change the lives of the scholarship recipients, but also, through mentoring, to encourage them to use their unique gifts to promote peace in their communities.
Jack Shockley Warriors for Peace Foundation
This fund has been established with the Central Indiana Community Foundation. It will promote peace and oppose gun violence by aiding the families of its victims and raising awareness of its devastating consequences.
