The next Outreach Ministries collection at the Masses on June 9 & 10 will go to support "Solidaridad en Cristo" - a Solidarity Project of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and Diocese of San Marcos, Guatemala.
Donations will help support the group traveling to Guatemala this summer as well as helping to support the schools, churches and the health clinic there. Visi Computer Teacher Joe Olding will be going on this trip along with other staff from St. Leo, Holy Family and St. Clement. This is the third trip as part of this project. Visi Spanish Teacher Cristina Holmes was on the second trip and Pastoral Associate Bill Tonnis was on the first...as was Fr. Jim Schutte. Fr. Jim will also be going this summer. The areas they will visit are where parishioners from St. Leo, Holy Family and St. Clement are from.
The program's goals are:
* To develop long lasting relationships, friendships and connections of school/parishes in Cincinnati with those in Guatemala;
* To build further understanding and appreciation of Anglo and Latino cultures and spiritualities among pastors, school principals, teachers, staff, parents and children in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and the Diocese of San Marcos;
* And to transform and strengthen our multi-cultural communities in Cincinnati.
As usual, make checks payable to "Our Lady of the Visitation".
