❤️ Share the Love! ❤️

On February 14 our CCD students shared God’s love by collecting items for three area organizations who serve those in need. The items included art and school supplies, shampoo and conditioner, soap, body wash, men’s items, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

The items will be distributed to Branches of Mercy, The R.K. Agarwal, MD & Family Teen Center and Shelter in Altoona, and the Martha and Mary House Homeless Shelter.

Many thanks to our CCD students and their families for generously sharing their blessings with others!

If you would like to share the love with these organizations, click here for more information.

Pakistan Outreach Update

These young students at the Little Hearts of Faith Learning Center in Pakistan are able to learn and practice their Christian faith in a non-threatening setting thanks to the sacrifice and efforts of Imran Mustaq with help from generous people in our parish and others in the United States.

Many here learned of Imraq and the children when they were featured in an article on the Proclaim! website a few months ago.

Read more about the school and the conditions these children face daily and find out how you can help by visiting the GoFundMe page.
