Sister Parish Scholarships: Help children at our Sister Parish of Santa Ana in Peru receive a quality Catholic education.
Please choose a child you would like to sponsor (see bulletin board in church vestibule) and remove the envelope with their name written on it. Then sign your name and contact information on the appropriate line of the signup sheet also located on the bulletin board. Return the envelope with your check no later than April 5th. Be aware that some children who receive full scholarships have been divided into two portions. If you want to sponsor that child in full you will need to take both the A and B envelopes. Thank you!
Mission Update: As announced earlier this year, there will not be a Mission in 2020. As Fr Tony described the number of moving parts regarding his many ministries, provincial affiliation, pending decisions, etc., all happening this summer, we concluded it would be best if we did not have a 2020 mission. We are very hopeful of resuming our annual Mission in 2021.
Children’s Health Drive: Since there will be no Mission this year, our means of transporting 500lbs of children’s vitamins (baggage) is not available. In lieu of vitamins, we will ask for your help this summer to support Fr Tony and local doctors address the rampant parasitic infections and anemia so prevalent among children in the Santa Ana community. Funds collected will be used for blood work and in country purchase of needed drugs.
