Worship Evenings Bring Eucharistic Fervor
"Father, we need this." A parishioner at Saint Joseph Parish in Lucinda said this to their pastor in response to the parish plan to hold a series of evenings of Eucharistic worship in collaboration with two other parishes in their region. A Catholic Foundation grant helped to make their plans a reality.

"Money invested where Catholic principles are going to be applied," was meaningful to them. The endowment they established in the Catholic Foundation will provide resources in perpetuity to the work of Catholic Charities.
