Our campaign on Giving Tuesday, for the needs of Immaculate Heart of Mary School, was a great success and I heartily thank all those who so generously contributed. The $10,000 Matching Gift was met and our goal of $25,000 was exceeded. All combined, the total raised is $35,885.
Almsgiving, prayer, and fasting, have always been encouraged by the Church during Advent as a means of preparing for the graces and blessings God wishes to bestow at Christmas time. I’m sure your alms was recorded in Heaven and God will bless you for it for Scripture says:
“Prayer is good with fasting and alms more than to lay up treasures of gold.” (Tobias 12:8)
The Brothers and Sisters are very grateful and extend to you their prayerful and best regards. You will be remembered in a special Mass of Thanksgiving on December 8, feast of the Immaculate Conception.
Grateful too, are we for all the support given in the past. This has not been the first campaign of 2022 and I thank all those who have helped to further our goals and the good works of our apostolate. You have been very generous.
In the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Br. Thomas Augustine, M.I.C.M.
