Every day, we hear about people in need around the world, yet we struggle to find a tangible way to personally make a difference. Through CARITAS FOR CHILDREN we’ve found a way. And for those who join us, it’s a way flowing with joy and purpose.
CARITAS For Children is a Global Ministry looking for a passionate and dynamic Executive Director of Ministry/Development. We are a Catholic Lay Apostolate recognized as a Private Juridic Person within the Archdiocese of Chicago dedicated to developing relationships globally while impacting faith locally. At its core, CARITAS For Children provides financial assistance for the health, education, and general welfare of orphaned and disadvantaged children. This is done in partnership as part of the laity of the local Catholic Church and/ or Catholic religious communities throughout the world. CARITAS brings a future and hope to children who have been born into a cycle of extreme poverty while creating a Christ centered encounter with (caritas-loving) supporters.
The person filling this position will be Christ-centered, enthusiastic, an effective communicator in writing and speaking, a servant who disciples and teaches other Christians, and could be an experienced Catholic missionary religious or clergy. The most successful individual to build this position will never feel like it’s work, instead, you will feel like it’s your personal mission to serve God. If you have a natural and heart-felt charism for human communication, you will very easily help us grow awareness of this special caritas-love among our existing and prospective sponsors and caritas-loving families. This will lead you to easily help us grow our network of Communities of Caritas. This is more than just a job, it is truly a ministry of love and sharing with others. As you consider and pray about exploring this work consider this:
As our Director of Ministry Development, you will be responsible for expanding CARITAS For Children as a Catholic Lay Apostolate recognized by the Catholic Church and operating as an ever expanding resource for The New Evangelization. A deep, personal motivation and commitment to the virtues of the CARITAS ministry is essential. Your guiding light can be found at: 1 John 13:34-35.
- You will use your dynamic personality to touch thousands of families through our volunteers, parishes, and sponsor families. Our evangelizing work collectively creates a deep understanding of God’s love for us, leading to the creation of the most heart-felt relationships possible with a child of God and our sponsors…globally.
- You will be giving real hope and a future to thousands of children worldwide. This will make a lasting difference in their lives as well as to all those who they in turn will touch with their love showing a true and loving mercy through direct relationships with our sponsors.
- You will grow Catholic faith-based relationships to better engage individuals and families with their parishes thereby implementing and expanding through your New Evangelization work.
- You will work with the Executive Director of Caritas along with our developing team using your excellent talent, energy and knowledge to build, reinforce, and expand awareness of our ministry regionally and throughout the country. There are substantial plans for growing our Caritas-outreach which will require your help in a number of areas including: (most especially) fundraising, introducing people to CARITAS and into a Christ-Centered mission encounter, going around the country in person, digitally, and through the use of social media as well as other forms of data-based methods, to reach tens of thousands of people with a message you will develop and “preach” using all of our latest technology. You will create Communities of Caritas throughout the US and beyond.
- You will raise awareness about CARITAS For Children and establish special relationships with Catholic communities of faith and Institutes, including Archdiocesan, Diocesan, parishes, schools, universities, retirement homes and others where individuals and families come to learn about God and live their lives.
- You will represent CARITAS at all levels of local church leadership and should have a good working knowledge of the institutional Church.
- You will serve the needs of all age groups with a good amount of special emphasis on young-adults, creating international long- and short-term mission trips, and you will be helping to form intentional disciples who will help us with their ever-expanding collaboration.
- You will grow and equip domestic and international volunteers and trainers of volunteers as Advocates for Caritas.

St. Thomas University (STU) seeks a President who will embrace STU’s vision to be recognized as a leading Catholic University, distinguished by its innovative curriculum, core values reflecting its Catholic intellectual and spiritual tradition, and vibrancy in its Miami location. The core values of Catholic Identity, Global Diversity, Student Success, and Leadership Development are key to the identity of STU as a whole. In addition, the theme of creating Leaders for Life implies the transformational nature of the university’s work.
St. Thomas University traces its roots back to the Universidad de Santo Tomas de Villanueva, founded in 1946 in Havana, Cuba, by American Augustinians. In 1961, the university was established in Miami on an expansive 130-acre campus.
The University is divided into six colleges that together offer 35 undergraduate majors, 27 graduate majors, five doctoral programs and two professional programs in Nursing and Law. Total enrollment is 6,357 students, including dual-enrolled high school students. STU carries out an impressive program of research over a wide variety of disciplines. In particular, the University is a leader in the fields of Business, Law, Human Rights, Communication Arts, Criminal Justice, Sports Administration/ Management, Cyber Security, Law, and Education. The University is establishing an Honors College and guaranteed internship opportunities, and has expanded research opportunities in Life and Health Sciences. Community based engaged scholarship programs exist within many courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. More information about the university may be found at: www.stu.edu.
Rev. Msgr. Franklyn Casale, who retires in 2018, has led St. Thomas University with distinction for nearly a quarter of a century. In its over 70-year history, the University has been blessed with consistent and inspired leadership by Roman Catholic priests. The new President, while not required to be a religious, will clearly understand and work to enhance the interconnected values of higher education and the Roman Catholic Church. The new President will benefit from a strong working relationship with the University’s dedicated faculty, a highly motivated Board of Trustees, and STU’s Juridic Sponsor the Archbishop of Miami.
St.Thomas University’s next President will be a passionate believer in the power of education to build better futures, elevate communities and improve the quality of life through the implementation of high academic standards and practices. The new president also needs to possess the personal characteristics necessary to be an effective spokesperson and fundraiser for St. Thomas University; a track record of successful philanthropic fundraising will be an advantage.
While leadership experience, specifically in higher education, is preferred rather than required, candidates with a personal experience with undergraduate, graduate and professional education will be decidedly advantaged, including those with a personal history of teaching, scholarly research and faculty governance. Importantly, the President will have the experience to excel in such areas as strategic planning, budgeting and financial management. Also, it will be beneficial for the new President to have a deep knowledge of student enrollment trends and tuition discounting, and its impact on the institution’s budget.
Inquiries, nominations and applications are invited. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. For fullest consideration, applicant materials should be received by February 28, 2018. Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a letter of application that addresses the responsibilities and requirements described in the Leadership Profile, and the names and contact information of five references. References will not be contacted without prior knowledge and approval of the candidates. These materials should be sent electronically to St. Thomas University’s consultants Lucy Leske and Veena Abraham, J.D. at PresidentSTU@wittkieffer.com.
