"God is Good, all the time!"

Fundraising for Belle Glade Mission Trip, Florida

By Don Bosco Prep students

Don Bosco Prep has a deep commitment to educating our boys to the truths of our Catholic faith. One of the most important Gospel values we advance is service to the poor in Christ’s name. For this reason, we have established a yearly mission trip to Belle Glade, Florida. A group of our students - grade 11 - is joining this mission trip during their Christmas vacation. This community is one of the poorest in the United States. Our focus is to run a winter camp during Christmas break for over 100 underprivileged children at our Salesian parish of St Philip Benizi. We are grateful to assist these poor youth toward a deep encounter with Jesus in a spirit of faith, family and fun. 

 

To facilitate this trip, the students are doing fundraising at St Luke by selling hand-carved items from the Holy Land. The students will be present next weekend, November 3 & 4.The producers of these products are the Giacaman Family in Bethlehem. These Palestinian Catholics are proud of their heritage and desire to remain in the Land of our Lord. To help them remain, we import these items providing a means of gainful employment. At the same time, these sales directly help us to provide for the poor in Belle Glade. We ask, first and foremost, for your prayers. Following your spiritual assistance, we welcome any purchases or donations which will be made toward our mission to the poor. Please be assured of our prayers. Thank you and God bless.
