The Sun of Hope Lenten Campaign, which ran during Lent, concluded at the end of April. The project, which is in its second year, was a huge success. Assumption parishioners and friends once again opened their hearts and generously donated to the cause. An astounding $17, 593.00 was raised and 100% of that money goes directly to the orphanage. To keep sponsors informed, those that provided a valid email, will be sent updates with pictures, drawings and news from the orphanage throughout the year. Assumption is definitely making a difference in the lives of those children at the Sun of Hope Village! Thank you to all those parishioners that donated to the campaign!
On Sunday, May 21st, at the 8:00 Mass, Father Mike presented Sister Catherine with a check from the Lenten Campaign. When asked about the project, Sister Catherine responded, “I was amazed to see how successful the Lenten campaign was. There are no words to express our gratitude for what you are doing for Our Children at the Sun of Hope Orphanage. We don’t know what we would do without you. Your kind gesture will last a lifetime in the life of these children. Thank you and May God Bless you and your families.”
