Bishop Phillips' Fundraiser:

No Family Forgotten 2014

As we enter this 11th month of this Holy Year of 2014, Let us approach it with thanksgiving in our hearts. Let us remain humble and receptive to those around us and their needs. We all are looking forward to the holidays of being able to spend time with family and friends, but let us also remember to not forget those who will not be able to be with family and loved ones regardless of reason. This is a Season for Caring and Sharing with those who go without.

The Diocese of Saint James and myself are blessed to be able to help those who are less fortunate in our area. The City of Grand Rapids, Michigan is plagued with those who will not get to be in a place to call home this thanksgiving and therefore, they will miss out on this time of family and fellowship.

The Diocese is honored to partner with the local Rescue Mission, Mel Trotter Ministries, who puts on a very eloquent Thanksgiving Day Meal for those who are homeless and less fortunate. They do this every year and rent out the DeVos Convention Center in Downtown Grand Rapids and feed 50,000 or more with an actual Thanksgiving Dinner with all of the fixings.

We are asking to consider making a donation to the Mel Trotter Mission through the Diocese of Saint James by helping us reach our goal of 10,000.00, which will go to give a family a Thanksgiving meal for this holiday so that no Family will be Forgotten.
