Asha Deep Fundraising for 2016
This past year, through the Oktoberfest and Giving Tree fundraisers, St. Patrick’s parishioners once more showed their incredible generosity and concern for the poor and disabled by contributing $12,805 towards projects for the school and orphanage at Ashadeep and the orphanage for the disabled Premdham. Since 2009, St. Patrick’s has raised money to buy milk cows, knitting machines, computers, equipment for science labs, solar water heaters, a school bus, an auto rickshaw and chickens to start a poultry farm. The Justice and Service Committee deeply appreciate the generosity and willingness of parishioners to give this ongoing support. The money this year will be used to continue to develop the poultry farm at Asadeep to provide eggs for the children, and cots, bedding and play equipment at Premdham.
In November a group of parishioners visited Bijnor Diocese, at their own expense. They were able to see first hand the tremendous growth and development of Ashadeep and Premdham, since their last visit, four years ago, and were impressed.
As in past years, the total amount of the money collected will be given directly to Asha Deep and Premdham. Bishop John, along with the priests and nuns working at Ashadeep and Premdham, continue to emphasize their gratitude and appreciation for the faithful commitment of the people of St. Patrick’s and to pray for us daily.
THANK YOU to all who contributed in any way, you are helping to give children new life!
When in Church… Be aware of your surroundings Keep your belongings safe and with you at all times Report any concerns immediately to the Office. We have seen a recent increase in thefts on Church Property.
