We launched the Minnesota Catholic Relief Fund (MCRF) on MAR. 19 to contribute to operational stability for Catholic parishes and schools during this time of disruption.
As of SAT. APR. 18, together we’ve raised $877,013, and we anticipate making the first round of grant distributions next week. But there remains great and urgent need.
And this week, your gift DOUBLES!
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all gifts to the MCRF from SUN. APR. 19 – SUN. APR. 26 will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
Any gift. Any amount. Doubled.
That’s double the support for parishes who’ve made the quick shift to livestreamed Masses, for schools who have moved to distance learning, for parishes providing food and rent assistance for parishioners in need, and for schools with childcare services that continue to support essential workers. And all of these services continue despite dramatically reduced plate collections and tuition payments.
Today is Divine Mercy Sunday, a fitting day to provide an opportunity to help Christ’s suffering body, the Church. We strive to reflect his immense mercy as we trust in the many consolations he grants us. Please prayerfully consider giving to the MCRF.
