A thank you from Fr. Mike:
It is said that many individual drops of water form an ocean. In our call for action, we quoted Francis of Assisi saying, “A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows”. Last weekend, many rays of sunbeams came together to support this year’s Clothing Drive to support the outreach efforts at both the Franciscan Center and the House of Bread.
We are grateful for our volunteer parishioners and the Confirmation students who helped collect and sort the items. In our excitement to fill the bins in the Franciscan Center with socks, t-shirts and undies, we completely forgot to take photos. We were able to take a very full carload over to the House of Bread. Be assured that every item donated is a blessing. Your gift may have been large or small, but will equally brighten the lives of others in Hartford who struggle to have basic necessities.
The author, Roy T. Bennett, said it best “Shine your light and make a positive impact on the world; there is nothing so honorable as helping improve the lives of others.” We thank you for shining your light.
