Greetings, I am excited to invite you to our annual fundraiser. Our theme this year is “Building a Future”.
“Building a Future’ is about looking beyond today; it is about being prepared for tomorrow.
Last year we celebrated opening doors to the world of employment through the rehabbing of houses and apartments. That effort employs a number of young people who have shown that with the proper support and the opportunity, indeed their lives can be transformed.
“Building a future” is about helping our youth experience the value and satisfaction of work. Whether it be in culinary or health care, the construction trade or higher education, we are striving to create new opportunities for young people to succeed. We want to build upon our workforce program and create an expanded jobs program that supports our young people through case management and career possibilities.
Having purpose and meaning in life is the greatest anti-violence measure. As Fr. Greg Boyle says, “Nothing stops a bullet like a job.”
Please mark your calendars for April 26th, 6:00pm to 9:00pm. It is one of those events where you can stay as long (or as little) as you want. No matter how long you stay, your support is critical to our work. Together let us create new pathways. Join us in “building a future” for our youth and families.
Fr. David Kelly, C.PP.S.
