Here is a brief video†clip of our cantors.
As you are aware we have a Lenten campaign to raise both money and awareness about the over 30 million people worldwide† that remain in slavery.† Yesterday, to kick off our time of Adoration, our Director of Parish Operations, Mr. Joe Jordano came to speak to the students about his experience working with International Justice Ministries and the impact our students and families can have on an enslaved family.† His dynamic and heart-felt presentation, which included the story of a young girl who worked in a rock quarry since she was three, made the issue of slavery both relevant and urgent.† He included a short video that highlighted the work other young people have done to help IJM free more families from bondage.†
We have already received over $1200.00 from you, our OLGC students and families. Along with an anonymous donor, we are now at $1500.00 and it is only the end of the first week!† I cannot thank you enough for your efforts.† We ask also that you continue to spread awareness among your family and friends.† As Mr. Jordano reminded us, there are three key things we can do:
- Pray for this work and these families and for a conversion of hearts for those who run this slave trade.
- Raise awareness.† Tell everyone you know about this issue and how they can help.
- Raise funds to support organizations like IJM so that they might have the resources to bring this daily tragedy to an end.
