I wanted to say a special word about the giving opportunity in today’s window on our online Advent calendar.
Last month, a fire destroyed 400 shanty homes in the Dukathole settlement outside of Johannesburg in the Diocese of the Highveld. The blaze left more than 1,000 children homeless. We are trying to raise money to help some of those children and their families get back on their feet.
Children in our dioceses are filling mite boxes to aid in the effort. If you can help out, we’d appreciate it.
