We will be selling cookie trays to support Combat World Hunger on Dec 14 & 15. Buy a $15 cookie tray and feed 375 starving children. The cookie trays make wonderful hostess gifts and affordable gifts for friends and colleagues.

Today, religious communities often do not have enough savings to meet retirement needs. Your gift helps provide medications, nursing care, and more for tens of thousands of elderly religious. It also helps ensure younger members can continue the good works of their elders.
