Committee awarded two scholarships for 2019.
Congratulations to Yanira Cristobal who received the $1000 scholarship, and Delaney Medina who received the $500 scholarship. We wish you well in your higher education endeavors.
The Crib Project 2019 absolutely showed the “giving spirit” of this parish. Your generosity overwhelmed the staff at the Pregnancy Care Center in Drexel, NC.
Their exact quote was “Thank you is not enough for all the generosity shown for the new mothers of Burke County.” The crib and baby items were delivered on May 22. The Ladies Guild would like to say “Thank You” to everyone who participated in this project.
The crib project is a parish collection sponsored by the Ladies Guild which supports women in Burke County who choose life for their babies rather than abortion. The crib is on display with paper booties in the church hallway. Select a bootie designating a baby item which you would like to purchase for a baby. Please return your purchased items with the corresponding bootie to the crib by May 19th. The donated items will be taken to the Pregnancy Care Center on May 20. If you have questions, contact Donna Davis at 828-584-8985. Thank you for your generosity.
We ask for your generous response to the second collection which will be taken in all diocesan churches on Easter weekend. This collection is to meet the growing needs of our Seminarian program. We have 36 young men studying for the priesthood in the St. Joseph Seminary in Charlotte, the Pontifical College Josephinum Seminary in Ohio, and the Pontifical North American College in Rome. We look forward to these seminarians beginning their service as priests in the Diocese of Charlotte.
Beware of an email scam. If you get an email from “Fr. Ken Whittington” that says I need a favor from you, and to email me back, IT IS A SCAM. Do not respond, just delete it.
