This is an incredibly generous community! If you weren’t at the masses last weekend, you missed the request to change the focus of our Lenten Project. So far, we have raised $5000 for Christ in the City. I suggest we send that money to Christ in the City and redirect our almsgiving during this time to help those who lost their homes in the recent fire in Laramie. I also suggest that we consider supporting one of the families until they are able to again secure housing and the basic necessities of life.
The Romero family is a family of six. They lost their home and their vehicle in the fire. The family members are Ramón (father, 32), Elida (mother, 36), Ángel (son, 17), Daniel (son, 13), Jasmine (daughter, 9), and David (son, 14 months).
We will be working to find them a permanent home. Others have offered very reasonably priced vehicles but we are still looking for a vehicle that could seat 6.
Please let me know if you are aware of a vehicle that could be donated or purchased for the Romeros.
As we journey with the Romero family, we strive to honor their dignity by allowing them to direct our response to their needs rather than deciding what they need. I will continue to be in touch with Ramon and Elida and will pass on their concrete needs to you. As you can imagine, financial donations are very helpful at this time. Above all, please keep the Romeros and all affected by this tragedy in your prayers.
Thank you for putting God’s love into action,
