Thanks to the priests who helped out while I was away. The first week the priests of the diocese attended “Continuing Education Days” These seminars were dedicated to Young Adults and how to serve them in our parishes. It was a very good week and very enlightening. The following days were my “once a year” week vacation. I thank Father Dermot for his great assistance. He comes in October as he has for several years to give the priests a break to go on vacation. It was good to get away for a week and nice to be back.

The missionary group named UNBOUND and father Jerry Morgan are very appreciative for the warm and generous welcome which was given to them this past weekend . Because of your generosity there are now 33 more children/aging who are now thanking God for inspiring someone to help provide some basic life necessities and helping them to begin building a path out of poverty. You -the sponsor - will be receiving a letter of thanks from your sponsor child /aging in about  2 months.
