Last summer, the Rosa family from our parish, helped at Mother Teresa's Charity Home in Agra, India. The 48 children who live there are orphaned or come from very poor families. Many are severely handicapped. The Rosa's discovered a community of love but also one with great needs for even the most basic items.
The Christian Services Commission is taking up this need through a parish wide Lenten sacrifice. The parish is collecting cloth diapers, diaper covers, bibs, and antibacterial ointment for the orphanage. Websites like www.clothdiaper.com offer the cloth diapers and covers. Brands such as Thirsties, Bummiis and Kushies produce quality diaper covers. These items will be collected from March 17 to April 1 in all parish buildings.
Please also keep the orphanage in your prayers.
