Give Back the Blessing 2023
The Give Back the Blessing offering is an opportunity for your gifts to help our brothers and sisters in ministry stretch their resources. Our Mission Engagement offering will bless two local partners, Catholic Charities of Central Colorado and Springs Rescue Mission, along with our partners Eliu and Edgar at Socorro in San Pablo, Guatemala. Locally, our Mission Engagement Ministry has recognized the growing need for transitional and affordable housing for marginalized groups in our community, specifically women and families experiencing homelessness. As of 2022, the “Point TimeCount” identified 152 families in our community living without a home, representing a 21 percent increase from 2020. More families are on the waiting list for transitional housing that is available. And an increasing number of women are seeking services from Springs Rescue Mission. In response to this stark reality, Springs Rescue Mission and Catholic Charities are building transitional housing for women and families in our community.
To participate, a collection will be taken during any of our four services on Palm Sunday, April 2nd. You can also give by clicking the button below to give electronically, just be sure to select "Give Back the Blessing" from the list of drop down accounts.
