Last night, Diocesan Council ratified the Alleluia Fund grant board’s recommendation to award a total of $171,000 in grants to 38 programs.
This year, 33 of the programs provide practical, hands-on support to our neighbors in northern New Jersey and five offer support internationally. While key areas of support include food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, education for youth and adults, and international programs providing relief and/or support of the Millennium Development Goals, the grant board focused more grant monies towards food and shelter ministries. All grantees are all sponsored by our diocesan communities of faith or their members.
You can still support our Alleluia Fund partners this year! Your gift received by December 31, 2015 will be distributed to these organizations doing God's work in the world. If you haven't already, please consider making a tax-deductible gift today.
