Father Hilario Rivera of Cross Catholic Outreach will be visiting our parish the weekend of May 25/26 to speak at all the Masses on behalf of the poor in developing countries. Cross Catholic Outreach was founded to create a meaningful link between parishes in America and the priests and nuns working in the Church overseas in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Central and South America.
Cross Catholic Outreach is an official Catholic ministry founded to help the poor throughout the world. They serve these struggling families by providing food, medicines and other life-saving resources through a network of Catholic partners already in place overseas. Run by priests, nuns and Catholic lay leaders, these feeding centers, orphanages, schools, clinics, job-training centers and home-building programs can literally do a world of good – if you lend your support.
Utilizing Catholic ministries to distribute aid empowers local leaders, strengthening the Catholic community’s ability to share the Gospel with those who need it most. Their cost-effective approach to distribution ensures more of your contribution reaches the poor.
