This year, we’d like to accomplish two goals through We Give Catholic: (1) continue to enhance our Encounter program for teens and (2) purchase tablets for HMKids fifth graders to use.
We’d like to continue to enhance Encounter, a three-day retreat for teens each June. Encounter combines faith, outreach and service. Teens will make and deliver brown bag lunches to the poor, spruce up landscaping at the home of a family in need, and visit a daycare, nursing home or shelter.
Donations will go toward providing transportation to the places where the teens are going to help others, and for supplies for the landscaping project.
2. Tablets for Fifth Grade Students’ Use
Fifth graders will retell Gospel stories for younger children and the church community by creating presentations on tablets and showing these presentations on the Gathering Area monitors.
Your donation will help us purchase 25-30 tablets that will be shared by fifth grade classes on Monday and Tuesday nights.
On November 27, please consider donating to Holy Martyrs’ #WeGiveCatholic site.
