As our last official act of charity, the Madonna Del Soccorso Women’s Society is pleased to donate our remaining assets of $585.48 to Father Antonio Nardoianni, Pastor of Sacred Heart and Saint Leonard’s Church, towards the urgent repairs to be done to the roof of Sacred Heart Church. I was informed that the repairs to Sacred Heart Church’s roof have been completed, but not paid.
I was honored to present this check to Father Antonio, on February 14, 2014. Happy Saint Valentine’s Day! The Pastor was thrilled to receive the donation. He thanked us, and promised to pray for all the members of the Women’s Society and their families.
In the years that the MDSWS was in existence, we have helped many in our own neighborhood and we always felt that when funds were available we should first look around us and help those close-by deserving charities. We have helped Saint John’s School, Sacred Heart Church, the North End Nursing Home and North End Against Drugs. We know that they all appreciated our financial assistance!
At the present time, some parishioners have come forward to help financially for repairs and renovations at the churches. So much more needs to be done. Our Society found it in our hearts to help our beloved Catholic House of Worship. I can delight in the concept that maybe you too will express your loyalties and help our Parish!
Usually when things go wrong in our lives, where do we run? To Prayer and Our Lord. Now that structural problems with the properties have come about, we have to pitch-in and help them get resolved.
