The Tuesday after Black Friday weekend is a day when some of us might feel a little buyer’s remorse. Especially if we spent more than we expected on things we didn’t exactly need! But it’s also a time to look more closely at our spending and our needs, and, hopefully, the needs of others. This day, developed by charities and non-profit group into an online social movement, is also known as #GivingTuesday, and is a call for shoppers to support their communities and all of their brothers and sisters here and abroad. We may or may not need those cashmere sweaters and “doorbuster” prizes. But children and families need education, medical attention, and more.
The Missionaries of the Sacred Heart have been called to support communities in the United States and abroad and many brothers and fathers have dedicated their lives to meeting the needs of the mission communities. In the United States, the MSC ministry includes parish missions and ministry, Hispanic and Native American ministry, prison ministry, Life’s Healing Journey retreats, as well as vocation assistance. The missionaries also participate in mission projects in Colombia and Papua New Guinea, where they provide parish support, youth and family enrichment programs, and housing, food, and educational assistance.
Please consider giving to support those in need, as well as the MSC brothers and priests this #GivingTuesday.
If you feel you that the MSC and MSC spirituality have helped your spiritual life or your community, please consider supporting our priests and brothers in their mission to answer God’s call. Go to http://misacor-usa.org/donate to make a one-time or monthly gift.
