In a rural community in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, poverty, malnutrition and unemployment are widespread. In an effort to sustain the families in this area, Arm In Arm In Africa provides a quarterly distribution.
I want to thank you for your warm embrace of Fr. Michael Lapsley at our liturgies last Sunday. It is a gift for me to bring together the two loves of my life: the community of SJA and our extended family in South Africa. This weekend, we have the opportunity to ex-press our financial commitment to the ongoing mission of our Sustaining Partner, Arm In Arm In Africa. I will be providing an overview of our ongoing ministries and updating you with some of our more urgent challenges. The second collection this weekend will support our ongoing mission. Your donation to Arm In Arm In Africa, a 501 C(3) is tax deductible. In addition to our second collection, you also have the option of donating online at our website, AIAIA.org. Your continued financial support and friendship will empower us to remain “arm in arm” to a more loving future for our world. Thank you for choosing Arm In Arm In Africa as one of your end of the year charitable contributions. -Gratefully, Fr. James Cassidy
We come as a family to make a connection, person to person, arm in arm and along the way to share our lives. It is our honor to improve the conditions and create opportunities for changing the cycle of poverty and disease in South Africa.
