YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
n the poorest of homes on the Missions, with no electricity for heating, no piped hot water, and only a cold hard earth floor to sleep on, a blanket against the winter cold is a necessity.
But many people are too poor to buy a blanket for each member of the family. One or two threadbare old blankets will have to be shared. Others will have to make do with tattered old newspapers to ward off the cold.
Unless caring people like you can find it in your heart to help.
Your donation – made online right now – will enable us to distribute the blankets to the poorest and most vulnerable Mission people before winter sets in.
Last year, people like you helped us meet the need for blankets on all the Missions in our Archdiocese … and we had enough left over to share with other Missions. The response was heartwarming:
“I’m writing to thank the people who are at the source of this good action. May the Good Lord bless you abundantly for the joy and warmth you bring to our people.”
Please will you be part of ‘this good action’ this winter? Knowing that someone cares will warm the hearts of poor people, while the precious blanket you provide warms their bodies.
In return we can offer you nothing but our prayers. If you have any intentions that you’d like included in our monthly Mass for Mission friends, please let us know by clicking here and we will add our prayers to yours. Thank you and God bless you.
