Good Works

Cultural Catholic - Good Works Guardian Angel

"Good works are essential and inseparable from prayer." - Pope Benedict XVI

Vatican:  "A form of education that ignores or marginalizes the moral and religious dimension of the person is a hindrance to full education.  Moreover, if religious education is limited to a presentation of the different religions, in a comparative and neutral way, it creates confusion or generates religious relativism or indifferentism."

“As a product of the Catholic school system here, I can attest that there may be no better gift or investment to make. This program provides those of us who attended Catholic schools with an opportunity to give something back to the system we benefited from as students,” said Holy Cross Sister Catherine Kamphaus, Superintendent of Catholic Schools.  “This is an opportunity for all Catholics to share in the education of young people.”

Sponsorships may be designated to particular schools but not to particular students and are available at four levels:

Patron – One full-year high school scholarship $7,500.

Benefactor – One full-year elementary school scholarship $5,000.

Do you have a sewing machine which is no longer in use?  Clare Liptak collects sewing machines and sends them to Tanzania.  She also sends sewing machines which are in need of repair, along with a check, to provide repair work for Tanzanians.  Kentucky is another place Claire sends sewing machines. Both electric and treadle machines are needed.  The manual sewing machines are sent to places where electric power is unreliable.  "Often the machine has been in their family a long time and they want it to be used. They don't want their grandmother's sewing machine to be thrown away," said Claire to the diocesan newspaper The Catholic Spirit.

Please forward sewing machines and sewing material to:

Joseph and Chico: The Life of Pope Benedict XVI As Told By A CatTax-deductible suggestion:  Joseph and Chico: The Life of Pope Benedict XVI As Told By A Cat is a book for elementary school children which tells the story of the life of Pope Benedict XVI when he was growing up in Bavaria, Germany.  The story is told by Pope Benedict XVI's next-door neighbor in Pentling, Germany, Chico, the cat, who would visit Pope Benedict XVI often.  Pope Benedict XVI is a cat lover who fed stray cats in Rome and brought one Roman stray cat home with him when he was a cardinal.  The Vatican doesn't allow animals, but when asked whether Pope Benedict XVI brought his two cats with him when he moved into the Vatican, the Vatican had no comment.  The Introduction is by Monsignor Georg Gänswein, Pope Benedict XVI's personal secretary.

Established 1915

Saint Brigid's in the Diocese of Providence  has a Prayer Shawl Ministry in which the group crafts shawls at home and meets once a month at the parish hall to discuss patterns and enjoy each other's creations and company.  The shawls are then given free of charge to hospital patients with a tag sewn in which reads, "Do Not be Afraid:  I am With You," along with a medal and a prayer card. "The healing aspect of the shawl is important to us," said crafter Ursula Zarella.  The group keeps a string from each shawl to remember to pray for the recipient of that shawl.  If you would like to create a shawl for the ministry or know someone in need of a prayer shawl, please telephone Saint Brigid's.

Developer Wilbur Breslin has received 800 Valentine cards from Sacred Heart Academy students in Hempstead on Long Island in New York each year for years.  Mr. Breslin and his partners, Fred Colin and Louis L. Ceruzzi, Jr., developers of The Hub Shopping Center, finally relented and gave the girls what they wanted - a nearby one-acre vacant lot valued at $1.5MM to be used by the students as a parking lot.  "It's the Valentine cards every year that did it," said Mr. Breslin. 

Let's add Wilbur Breslin to our card list:
