Therefore, would you please, please help me in this worthy project to build up the Church?
Whether it be $0.05 or $500 or $5,000 (which would more than take care of things), please donate something.
The Catholic Christian missions that will get these educational, medical, nutritional, catechetical, sacramental, and theological materials are:
- the Catholic parish in Toba Tek Singh, Pakistan (Immaculate Conception)
- Sr. Shamim, a woman religious who works with that parish's nearby brick kiln (read: slave) children
- the Diocese of Faisalabad, which is in the midst of a three-year effort to get all of its Catholic more familiar with Scripture and better equipped to spread the gospel (if you've ever read how tough it is to be a Christian of any sort in that nation, you know they have their work cut out for them)
- the Diocese of the Solomon Islands' Marriage and Family apostolate
- a couple of Indian seminaries
- and St. Michael's, the main seminary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
You have until July 26, because I have to send whatever I can the next day.
