On the weekends of July 30-31 and August 6-7, Sisters Inga and Marilyn were on a different kind of mission–one that is about asking for assistance and help for the Felician Mission Haiti.
July 30-31, we were welcomed to St. Rose Parish, Belmar, NJ. Msgr Ed Arnister (brother of our Sr. Juanita) invited us to share about the Haiti Mission. We had visited his parish four years ago, and it was a blessing to update the people on what they have contributed to the mission in Jacmel. All were welcoming and most generous once again.
For the Saturday evening Mass, we were joined by our faithful supporters and sisters who help us with the mission in the USA.
The next weekend we went to St. Teresa of Calcutta, Avon by the Sea and Bradley Beach, NJ. We were welcomed by Fr. Erin Brown.
Fr. Brown is pastor of two parishes that joined together under the patronage and name of St. Teresa of Calcutta. It was a wonderful weekend with God’s people who were once again generous with their treasure.
“Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your belongings and give alms. Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” Luke 12:32-34
