A NOTE FROM OLGA MAKAROVA
We are so happy to announce that over $9000 was donated to support Olga's cousin.
Olga writes: Dear members of Emmanuel, I would like to thank the parish for your generosity in supporting my cousin who is now a refugee because of the war in Ukraine. Glory be to God for your kind hearts and compassion! Your donations are a powerful witness to God's help in the most difficult times. I would also like to share my cousin's words of gratitude: "Only God knows how grateful I am to each of you for your participation in our lives, for your compassion and help, for your humanity and understanding, for your eagerness to help, and open hearts! May God bless you all and when you are least expecting. May abundance and prosperity be in your families and homes! And may your children always live in peace. -Natalia"
This is our last week of our parish-wide Lenten focus on the pillars of Fasting, Prayer, and Almsgiving. Plan to stay after service on Sunday, when we will put almsgiving in motion by packing 300 sack lunches for Emmanuel's Sack Lunch Ministry. Questions? Get in touch with Marisa or another member of the Intergenerational Formation Team.
