race for the kids

if anyone is in carlisle, pennsylvania on november 13, think about running or walking in the "race for the kids"! it is the 2nd annual st. patrick's parish foreign mission team fundraiser to earn financial support for our lady of hope orphanage in jamaica. this mission and "race" are very close to my heart as my dad and family have been a part of raising funds, getting the word out, and traveling to impoverished countries from the beginning.

here's a little background: the foreign mission team was started to offer support to indigent populations around the world. the team offers spiritual, educational, and medical support and building construction depending on the need of the population served and the cooperation of the traveling team.

if you would like to participate or would like more information, please download the form (front and back), raise money, and have fun! donations are always welcome and can be sent to st. patrick's church office, 152 east pomfret street, carlisle, pa 17013. checks made be made payable to saint patrick's church. thank you!
