Gospel in Action

Covenant House - Updates

On November 11th and 12th, Robert Zindell from Covenant House spoke at each of our Masses explaining their work with the homeless youth in the Philadelphia area. We accepted donations supporting their work until December 3rd. The parishioners of OMGC put $1,500.00 in our blue collection boxes during that 4-week period, and the Ministry Team is very grateful for your generous response. As we are going through our first extended cold spell of this winter season, the staff and volunteers of Covenant House are hard at work reaching out to young people who are suffering on the streets. If you wish to learn more about the good that Covenant House does, or if you would like to make another donation, you can reach them by phone at 215-302-7506 or visit their website: www.covenanthousepa.org. Thank you for once again helping us put the Gospel in Action.
