JOHNSTOWN, PA — With the blessing of His Grace, Bishop Gregory, the National Junior ACRY, as in previous years, calls upon all to aid in the Mission of our Diocesan Apostolate of Saint John the Compassionate, in the inner city of Toronto, Ontario. The National Junior ACRY hears the call from the words of Saint John and invites everyone to help fulfill the command to love in action.
Members of the Junior ACRY visited the Mission this past summer and witness Christ’s love, which labors through the Mission ministering to the needs of others. Last year’s donation from the National ACRY together with a matching grant from the John C. Kulis Charitable Foundation was hand delivered by President Alexa Fitzgerald to Paul Tadros, Prior of the Mission, on behalf of all who donated to the Lenten Youth Project. The Project with the aid of a matching grant from the John C. Kulis Foundation raised $22,365.00 for the Mission last year.
