Divine Word Missionaries
Many, many thanks for the mission offerings for the parishes assigned to our Divine Word Missionaries
for the year 2001.
We surely do appreciate these assignments with the financial and spiritual returns! Your check contained the financial but only God can count the spiritual benefits of the prayers and the financial sacrifices and charity of the people.
Both are so very helpful for the Missions.
Again: in the name of all our Divine word missionaries: "Sincerest Thanks"
Sincerely with you for the Great Mission Cause of the Lord,
Leo F. Hotze, S.V.D.
Rev. Leo B. Shea, M.M.
Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers
Thank you for your recent check in the amount of $8,375.45, which has been received at our office. This total represents the results of our mission appeals under the Mission Cooperative Plan for 2001.
Your check truly reflects the fine mission spirit of the parishioners in the Los Angeles Archdiocese. The Maryknoll priests and Brothers are indebted to our people at home for the generous support we receive to carry out mission efforts overseas, under the direction of the local diocese or the Propagation of the Faith, Rome.
Father Dave, on behalf of all Maryknollers, I extend our grateful thanks to you, for allowing us to bring our mission message to the good people of your diocese during 2001.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
