Our parish received a letter from The Glenmary Home Missioners thanking Fr. Ralph and our generous parishioners for their monetary gifts in response to Father Chet Artysiewicz’s mission appeal. These funds provide support for their missions and ministries throughout Appalachia and the South. The support allows them to share our faith in areas where there was previously no Catholic presence— no church building, no faith community for fellowship, and no celebration of the Sacraments. Through the support of many, Glenmary missions are able to nourish and establish strong and vibrant Catholic communities. Fr. Chet really enjoyed his visit!
