Tekton Ministries Catholic Pilgrimages, Media and Non Profit Management became a permanent sponsor of the popular Archdiocesan Race for Vocations in Indianapolis which occurs during the One America Festival Mini-Marathon and 5k each May.
Richard Sontag, director of Tekton Ministries, saw this as a prime place to establish sponsorship and further the mission of Tekton Ministries, which is to serve people on their journey of faith, he said.
“I’m not a runner.” Sontag laughed, “Running is a penance for me. So what a great way to pray for vocations, evangelize and support our priests and religious. We wanted to participate however we could and that meant becoming a permanent sponsor of the Race for Vocations.”
Embracing the new evangelization is something Tekton Ministries seeks to accomplish through Catholic media. “At the same time, old methods work as well,” Sontag commented when talking about how the runners and walkers witness to their faith.
