San Antonio Grande Annual Campaign-During the month of December, we offer
you three ways to participate in the fundraising campaign for our San Antonio Grande, El Salvador sister parish ministry.
1. You may use the donation envelopes found in the pews or bulletins.
2. Bethany's Outreach Board invites your donations for cards to give as gifts: "A monetary gift has been given in your name to the scholarship and community development fund for the village of San Antonio Grande, El Salvador . . ."
3. For a donation, you may also obtain stars to place on the narthex Christmas tree in honor or memory of someone special.
In 2014, our San Antonio Grande funds
will be used to help pay high school and college education expenses for some of San Antonio Grande's young people, as well as a community development sewing project for dozens of adults.
If you would like a glimpse of the sewing project, here is a video from El Salvador:
