Busy Padre

Sorry so little blogging lately. This week I’ve been out of my normal schedule because of the mini mester at St Joseph’s Catholic School. My mini mester course was Help Haiti. Some of you very kindly made donations through the blog. We raised $2,000.00 and the kids went shopping and bought and filled 60 plastic shoe box sized boxes to make ‘survival boxes’ for kids living in tent cities in Haiti. Into the boxes went, flashlight, rosary, t shirt, flip flops, sun hat, bouncy ball, holy card, washcloth, water bottle, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, soapbox, little toys, holy medals. They also bought and filled 60 folders with paper, pens, pencils, erasers, and other school supplies. Today we took them all to Atlanta and visited the charity FODAC–who will ship the stuff out to Haiti. Here are some of the kids with the big box of stuff to go to Haiti. Those are the folders with school supplies on top.  Those of you who contribute–thanks very much!
