Helping to preserve the spiritual purpose and enduring beauty of Catholic liturgical art items

A Call for Help

Recently, vandals smashed their way into the SPORCH offices.  The police have little sign of attempted theft or any apparent rationale for the crime – all evidence points simply to a malicious intent to inflict damage. To add insult to injury, the vandals ruptured the plumbing to flood the building after wreaking havoc on its contents.

Two rare, Deprato statues were knocked to the ground and desecrated; the faces of the historic matching set of century-old statues, Our Lord and Our Lady, were attacked.

This vandalism was very costly and we are now struggling to rebuild.

We ask you please to pray for the conversion of the vandals who, as yet, have not been apprehended. We also ask you to pray that SPORCH will have all necessary help in repairing and replacing equipment and inventory, as well as restoring these valuable statues.

We also pray we can turn this sacrilege, which so saddens our hearts, into something positive. You can help!

Your donation will be most appreciated, put to the best use possible, and is tax-deductible.

Many priests and seminarians around the globe have been the beneficiaries of SPORCH generosity, including Cardinal Burke, who has publicly praised the work.

Even small donations are appreciated.  Help us get going again -  priests need our goods.

Thank you

Headquartered in Dayton Ohio, the Society for the Preservation of Roman Catholic Heritage (SPORCH) is a spiritually-motivated group of clergy, religious, laity, artisans, and concerned individuals working to preserve the spiritual purpose and enduring beauty of Catholic liturgical printed art items: altar appointments, ordinals, missals, hymnals, and other artifices from the Roman Catholic liturgical and cultural heritage of our nation.

Our Misson is to promote the Roman Catholic Heritage and Traditions through its art and artifacts and to build a bridge between the Catholic traditions of the past and promote continuing them into the church of tomorrow. See our Programs and Projects.

To help support our efforts, we make prints, such as the one shown here, as well as some of our found/restored items, available at affordable prices.
