Next weekend we will have our annual Missionary Co-Operative Appeal. This year we have Father Paul Prabel from the Diocese of Lexington, Kentucky. The missionary activity involves working with some of the poorest individuals and families in the United States. This former bishopric of our own Bishop Gainer is set in the heart of Appalachia. Our own missionary efforts from our parish through the Father Beiting Mission helps us realize how desperate the needs are of our brothers and sisters in Kentucky. When I was there last year I was shocked at the amount of poverty right in our own country. Please be generous this year. The sacrifice you make can do major good for people whose lives are so different from our own. Remember the words of Jesus as you make your contribution this year: “Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers or sisters, so you do unto me!”
