Holy Family of Nazareth Wheelchair Sunday

Father Jacob and Brother Knights,

Holy Family of Nazareth Council #5243 in Irving, and the Dallas Diocese, had a successful 2nd Annual Wheelchair Sunday over the weekend. They collected $10,519 for 70 wheelchairs. Since it is estimated that each wheelchair delivered changes and improves an average of 10 lives, they will impact the lives of 700 people. Their funds will go towards providing a large container of 280 wheelchairs for the Michoacán CRIT Center in Mexico.

There were 10 Lady of Guadalupe lithographs given out to donors of $500 or more.

Thank you so much to Fr. Jacob Dankasa for his wonderful support of this mission and to Brother Loren Hedrick for again coordinating the event and for helping and reading the pulpit talk at all the Masses. Thanks also to the other Brother Knights that helped and to the Holy Family of Nazareth parishioners for their kindness and generosity in providing these wheelchairs for children in need.

God bless all of you.
