There are two questions that donors never tire of asking charities such as ours. How did you use my donation? Did it make a difference in anyone’s life? We are posting these stories to answer these questions. We think you will like them. They are short and personal. The settings range from the South Side of Chicago to the “hollers” of West Virginia to the poor neighborhoods of Kingston, Jamaica. In every case, your generous support enabled our missionaries to touch the lives of people with the love of God. Thank you!
What a wonderful and different gift Father Michael Tomaszewski received shortly after his ordination in SVD Chicago Province, on May 21, 2011. A bicycle! He was most grateful to our benefactors for this unique gift. He knew it would come in handy in his first assignment as parish priest along the Sepik River in his new assignment in Papua New Guinea.
