About Hope Ministry

giftcardThe weekend of September 17/18, 2016 Saint Cecilia Parish will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary of our HOPE Ministry. We give thanks to you, our wonderful parishioners of St. Cecilia, for your on-going generosity and commitment to making our HOPE Ministry so successful. HOPE Ministry is comprised of 6 different ministries, namely, the Community Survival Center, the Bethlehem House, HOPE Haiti at Hopital Sacre Coeur, Reader to Reader, Heifer International and HOPE at Home. Each ministry has an annual individual fundraiser, but beyond that, they are also supported by profits from the Shopping Card Program and individual donations.
A fund raising program has been established to support our HOPE Ministry. Gift cards for local businesses are available for purchase through St. Cecilia Church. A percentage of these cards will be given to St. Cecilia HOPE Ministry. Gift cards are sold after each Mass on the weekends. There is also an order form with additional cards that can be picked up the third weekend of each month or they may be received by mail. An order form is available on the website. Please contact John and Sandy Gilbertie (596-4983) with any questions. The ministries that are supported are Hope-Haiti, Reader-to-Reader, Hope-at-Home, Heifer International, Community Survival Center and Bethlehem House.
The total amount of money that has been allocated over 9 years from the aforementioned is a staggering $140,000!
