“Our parish will be graced with the visit of Sister Anila Christy, of the Congregation of the Daughters of Mary, from Tamil Nadu, India, the weekend of Aug. 12-13. Sister will speak to us at all the Masses on Mission Co-Op Sunday.
I ask for your generosity the following weekend after Sister’s appeal, Aug 18-19 when we will take up a second collection in support of the Daughters of Mary’s mission in service to the poor and mentally ill; in running orphanages for abandoned children, and providing homes for the homeless and those afflicted by leprosy and AIDS. The Missionary Co-Op Plan of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia has supported the ministry of the Daughters of Mary since their mission was given pontifical status by Pope John Paul II in 1988. I know you will join me in giving a warm St. Gen’s welcome to Sister.”
– Father Kevin
