COLLECTION FOR OUR SISTER PARISH/SCHOOL IN TANZANIA, AFRICA - JULY 8-9

Our second collection on July 8th and 9th will be for our sister Parish/School in Dodoma, Tanzania Africa. Fr. Luyembe Sossy, S.J. sent a recent email to the parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi thanking us for our continued support of their Parish and School. On Sunday June 24th, the feast of Corpus Christi, over 250 children who attend Saint Ignatius Prep and Primary School received their First Holy Communion. Here is an excerpt from his email:

Peace and greetings! Happy feast of the Corpus Christi! It has been a continuation of feasts - and good reminders of our history and journey of salvation. All have been rewarding to our faith and we thank God for his love upon us...the God who continues to nourish us. We had a wonderful celebration today with a good number of children receiving their First Holy Communion!

All is well, though this year we did not receive enough rain, and we have a bit of drought. We just pray that the food situation remains stable and we do not experience any shortage. Be assured of our prayers and our greetings to all of our friends at St. Francis of Assisi Parish! Blessings and thanks for your ongoing support of our mission to bring the children of Tanzania closer to God.

REFUGEE FAMILY UPDATE

Dear Parishioners,

As you may be aware, our community at St. Francis of Assisi has adopted a refugee family of 7 from Afghanistan. We are proud to report that the family has been working tirelessly to complete the immigration process and assimilate in the United States. During this time, funding is essential. Therefore, we are asking for your continued support and generosity. Any monetary donation you can make will be greatly appreciated. “And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” (Hebrews 13:16)

In the near future, St. Francis of Assisi will host a get-together for all parishioners who wish to meet this wonderful family whom we have been so honored and blessed to help. Please make your tax deductible donations payable to St. Francis of Assisi Church.

On behalf of Father Ismael and your St. Francis of Assisi Refugee Committee, God bless!
