Each year as the year winds down, St. Patrick conducts an appeal for funds for Heifer International, an organization devoted to developing sustainable agriculture in poverty stricken communities throughout the world. A pair of goats, a flock of sheep, a gaggle of geese or any of the other usual bequests of animals provide a family or community with the means to better themselves and their standard of living. More information is on the project’s website.
To join this initiative, download the donation sheet here, and return your donation to the parish, via mail or in an envelope in the Sunday collection. (Make checks payable to St. Patrick Church.)
