October 15: Bread for the World’
s annual Offering of Letters campaign engages churches, campuses, and other faith communities in writing letters to Congress. Each year, for the focus of the campaign, we choose specific legislation or a legislative emphasis that can make a real difference to people struggling with hunger and poverty.People write letters, usually as a group, and present them as an offering to God before mailing them to Congress. Hundreds of Offerings of Letters are held each year, resulting in tens of thousands of letters to Congress. Supported with prayer, these letters are a bold witness to God’s justice and mercy. They have, and continue to have, a significant impact on the decisions made in Congress.
We'll be signing these on Oct. 15 at all masses. For more information:
Big Red Carnevale
is going to be celebrating its fourth birthday, this coming Fat Tuesday. Or it would...if there was anyone to plan it. No experience required, just the energy and excitement to put on one heck of a Mardi Gras celebration. Email email@example.com to work on your grant writing, event planning, and scheduling skills. (it's not a TON of work, we promise, but someone's gotta get the ball rolling)
We are also looking for students to volunteer their talents as graphic designers and web developers, to help Cornell Catholic put the best foot forward, even in Cyber space.
