Each year Holy Spirit Parish chooses an organization/ministry to support as part of its Advent preparation. Through our support of this project we are able to make “gift donations” in the name of our family and friends. Donations are sent directly to the organization. Envelopes are available for your convenience. Cards are also available for your use indicating that a gift was made to a chosen organization.
This year we have chosen two—the Onward and Upward program through Catholic Charities and the Sacred Heart Haiti Mission. More information can be found on the table in the Narthex.
Onward and Upward—Catholic Charities
With a goal to stop the cycle of generational poverty in its tracks, this pilot program will focus support for pregnant and parenting women in order to help them complete their post-secondary education and achieve family financial stability and self-sufficiency. The program would provide supports such as: life skills counseling, parenting skills, support for day-to-day challenges, financial support, mentoring and guidance. The program will be directed towards students who have just enrolled in post-secondary education and have an interest in LPN and/or ADN (good careers for Mayo Clinic and other healthcare facilities. Mayo presently has 15 pages of LPN positions available). Sometimes all you need is a “helping hand” to move onward and upward.
The Sacred Heart Haiti Mission
The Sacred Heart Haiti Mission is a local Rochester organization that supports the poor people of Haiti. The goals of this organization include: building houses for families living in makeshift shacks, providing food and clean water, helping individuals start small businesses and assisting with doctor bills and college tuition. Your monetary donation helps support these goals as well as facilitates the shipment of cargo containers to Haiti. Locally, the Rochester group collects items donated by businesses and individuals across the country. A cargo container is delivered to Rochester where many volunteers help to pack it and send it on its way to Haiti.
