Barrels for Life Diaper Drive:
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Barrels for Life Diaper Drive we had on Monday evening. Your donations are greatly appreciated! A special thank you to Martyrs Moms for partnering with us to make this drive possible! We collected hundreds and hundreds of diapers for the Women and Children at St. Gianna Women's Homes.
Fr. Benedict Groeschel:
The Live Greater Leadership Team is saddened to learn of the passing of Father Benedict Groeschel the night of Oct. 3rd. His life and his work have inspired us and informed our sense of purpose. This is a bitter sweet moment: as we know that Father is now resting free from pain in the arms of Our Heavenly Father, we still mourn the loss of such an incredible leader. Our hearts are with his family and the order he helped to found. Let us remember Father Benedict in our prayers.
EWTN aired Father's funeral Mass at 11 a.m. ET, Friday, Oct. 10, and the Prayer Vigil at 7 p.m. ET, Thursday, Oct. 9.
Please watch this Great Video about Fr. Benedict Groeschel. What a great impact he had on people's lives!
Barrels for Life Blanket Drive for Siena/Francis Home in Omaha, NE:
We will be doing a Barrels for Life Blanket Drive for the Siena/Francis Home the week of Oct. 26th- Nov. 2nd. Live Greater will be partnering with a few parishes, family and friends to collect new and used blankets for this homeless shelter, which is the largest shelter in the state of Nebraska. As the weather is getting colder, blankets are a huge need for the shelter this time of year! Please stay tuned for more information as time gets closer!
