Serving God's Children

Posted Thu, Jul 11th, 2013 By Fr. Neil News

Dear friends,

    Recent newspaper articles have raised the alarm that from 2007 to 2011, the number of children in poverty has climbed 20%.  We certainly have experienced this at St. John's. 

    Each day we see more mothers with their children seeking our help.  Compassion helps us see their beauty even in the most dreadful situations.  There can be only one response.  Together we will reach out and offer a great meal in an oasis of peace.

    Children have a knowledge that is intuitive.  Like us, they know we are all God's children.  (1 John 3:1)

    God is where the poor are -- especially the children!

Peace,

Fr. Neil
