Throughout the Lenten season, the Shrine will be taking a second collection at each of our masses in support of the Cabrini Missions in Ethiopia. Cabrini Ministries provides health, education, housing, food and social services to hundreds of people in this very rural area of Dubbo. Families in Dubbo have limited access to food, running water and education.
Cabrini Ministries provides food to the many impoverished families and is funding their needs for medical treatment. The need for education is also great and currently Cabrini Ministries is educating over 300 children. Unfortunately, many children are being turned away so our ministry is helping these children by paying for them to be educated at other schools.
The Mission also runs St. Mary’s Hospital that delivers over 1000 babies a year and provides health services to the community. Recent funds allowed them to build a new kitchen so they can cook for patients as well as pay for medical care of sick patients that are poor.
The Missionary Sisters of the Sacred heart go beyond ourselves to the frontiers where people need us most. Family is not always about relatives but the people in your life who want you in theirs so as part of our family help us to support those who need us most.
If you are able to donate to Cabrini Ministries Ethiopia, please make a check payable to National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini and mail to us at 2520 North Lakeview Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614 or click here to make an online donation and put "Cabrini Ministries Ethiopia" in the "Tribute Gift Designation" box.
