A dollar can make the difference:
Helping the needed

In Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus tells us that we have to feed the poor, give the thirsty drink, clothe the naked, welcome a stranger, care for the ill and visit those in prison.

In the Catholic community, we do a wonderful job in helping those in need. We have many wonderful stories about how the Catholic community has made a difference.We are able to help those in need with the donations to the poor box (located in North vestibule) or to our charity fund.

Unfortunately our charity account is empty. Here is where each and every one of us can make a difference. If each week, we drop a dollar in the poor box, we would be able to help those in need. Jesus said, “Amen” I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me. Please help us make a difference in our community.
