The Amazing Generosity of Missionary Children
Many of the Catholic schools and religious education programs in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles participate in an annual fundraising campaign to aid missions worldwide. And this year, the Religious Education program at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church chose The ROCK Association as the beneficiaries of the funds raised.
Throughout the lenten season they collected what they could into little boxes. We went out and made a presentation to the kids and showed them photos from Bumai to explain where their donations would be going. After hours of separating, counting, and rolling the coins we were surprised to find that these generous kids were able to donate a total of $1,711! They were all very excited and our hope is to make this an annual partnership!
