Giving Tuesday is on November 30th this year. Over the past several years, this has become the traditional day to make online charitable gifts in honor of the holidays, and to encourage our friends on social media to do the same.
This year we have a special cause to raise funds for on Giving Tuesday. On August 29th, Category 4 Hurricane Ida slammed into Louisiana with 150 mph winds and torrential rain. Significant damage was sustained by the Franciscan-staffed St. Mary of the Angels church, school and friary, located in the upper ninth ward of New Orleans.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 on giving Tuesday that we can send to New Orleans to help with the repairs and rebuilding. The friars, their parishioners and students will all benefit greatly from your generosity. And any gift you make will be doubled--the Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus will match all gifts on Giving Tuesday.
