Special Collection for Christo Rei Parish in Haiti
In keeping with Catholic social justice principles, we will be having a special collection for Christo Rei Parish – Christ the King – in Morne Rouge, Haiti at all Masses on the weekend of September 10 & 11.
Members of our Social Justice and Peace Commission will be at church entrances with more information, photos of the parish’s works, and to receive your generous offering. Every gift helps, no matter the size. Funds raised, from all sources, feed students in their parish school a morning bowl of rice and beans – food to soothe hunger with nutrients essential to concentrate at school. 50 % of what is raised covers teachers’ salaries. Then, remaining funds help pay for fuel, support catechist and sacristan needs, and a bit for the pastor. If you’d like to know more about this mission, please touch base with Ursula or Bill through the parish office, or directly.
Checks can be made out to OLH with Haiti Project in the memo. Thank you for your consideration and spirit of generosity and your faithful prayers for the concerns of Christo Rei Parish.
