During the Christmas season the Holy Name 1st graders will also collect socks and children’s books for families served by St. Vincent DePaul Society through St. Raymond/Our Lady of Good Council parish on Detroit’s eastside.
In addition to their acts of service and generosity, the 1st graders at Holy Name hope to communicate via the internet with the children at Little Angels school in Ichama to learn more about their lives and experiences in a land far different from their own, although that communication is hindered by the lack of computers and reliable internet service for the children at Little Angels School in Nigeria.
You can help support the same efforts as these “small” missionaries at Holy Name School. Go to the Contact Us/Donate page on this website and click on the “Donate” button there. A $10 donation is enough for one “Our Catholic Faith” book for a child in Nigeria, $25 will help put gas in the tank of the used van at the SHVM convent in Gwagwalada, $200 will purchase a knitting machine for the Sr. Mary Schutz Women’s Empowerment Center.
