2015 Lenten collection for Mission in Gabon, Africa

Thank you to all of you that donated so generously to our Lenten collection for the St. Therese Mission in Gabon, Africa. The hundreds of medals, rosaries, scapulars, other religious items, and financial donations collected during Lent were sent off this week. 

From Canon Fragelli:
"Being that Mission Saint Therese of the Infant Jesus is situated in a very poor area, the work of the Mission would simply not be possible without the generosity of donors like you. And here every gift, big or small, counts tremendously. Nothing, absolutely nothing, goes to waste.
The Mission needs donations for its different projects, but most importantly it needs Monthly Donors that, even if by a smaller amount, allow these projects to have stability and continuity. And only in Heaven you’ll know all the good that you do, as well the immenseness of our gratitude."

If you would like to make donating to the Missions in Africa a regular part of your giving, here is a link to Canon Fragelli's website, Friends of the Mission St. Therese of the Infant Jesus. It contains all of the information about his work there, and how to support Mission St. Therese. Please also take a minute to sign up for Canon Fragelli's quarterly Mission Report.
