Year of Mercy
Parent and Parishioners:
As we all know Archbishop Naumann has called for
this to be the Year of Mercy. I have been volunteering
at the Catholic Charities food bank for a while and
have noticed that most of the time, the homeless have
lacked of proper footwear. To help with this problem
and to answer the Archbishop call, I have established
Sole Reason, a company that collects your used or
greatly used shoes and donates them to the homeless
and less fortunate in our community. It will be a non–
profit company that uses the communities love, compassion, and generosity to equip the less fortunate with
proper footwear. I will have donation boxes set up at
your parish, ( by the south door) the month of January
where you can drop off your shoes. I will also be able
to pick up your shoes if you would like, just call me,
Jerry, at (785) 338-2965 to set up a time and place.
This will be continuous project and I will have a website in the coming week which will be for mor e info. On behalf of
those less fortunate, God bless and thank you.
