You gave, it helped: You supported the Alleluia Fund for Outreach!

Suzanne Willian, Advisor to the Bishop for Development

Since its inception in 2010, the Alleluia Fund for Outreach has helped feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, comfort the elderly and support education, enrichment and mentoring for at-risk children throughout the diocese.

In December Diocesan Council approved $100,000 in grants to 35 organizations through the Alleluia Fund, based on the gifts received through November (see the list of recipients). We were happy to receive more gifts through December, which allows us to increase the support given to these organizations that are committed to doing God's work in the world. In fact, domestic and international outreach grants for 2013 will total nearly $154,000!

Together, we made a difference, helped those in our community, and changed peoples’ lives.

Thanks to all who made this possible.
