My dear parish family of St. Mary of the Assumption,
Thanks to the Bishop and your Pastor, Fr. Joseph Geleney I will be making my Annual Mission Appeal on the first weekend of August, 1 st and 2 nd, for the Missionaries of Hope Program that takes care of the health and education of the poorest of poor children in villages in Pakistan where active persecution and discrimination of the Christians has been going on since its separation from India in 1947. Without your help and prayers those children will have no hope and no future.
Please do pray to the Holy Spirit how you can show your love and kindness to those precious children. In advance I thank you from the bottom of my heart and may our Lord who loves children bless you abundantly.
