I hope your having a lovely time preparing for Christmas! I know we are, getting ready to visit the communities of Mocomoco.

I blogging this time to announce our five-year fundraising effort and to ask your continuing support of the mission here in Bolivia. You’ve been so generous to us, and I’m asking you to stretch even further so we can do more. With you’re help, we’re making A Miraculous Impact. You can access the document online on a variety of formats at http://vocesvicentinas.org/donate .

Here’s what I’m asking:
1. Make a pledge for five years. You can make your pledge as a recurring credit card payment, or send me an email at fatherr@gmail.com telling me what you’ve decided to pledge by check.
2. Join me in Philadelphia for a special event on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at the Vincentian Provincial House (500 East Chelten Avenue, Philadelphia PA 19144), starting at 2 PM with a light lunch and concluding with Mass at 5 p.m.
3. Continue to invite friends and family to join the effort.

I hope to see you in Philadelphia. Please respond if you’ll be attending or not when you make your pledge.

Have a blessed Christmas and Happy New year!
