We realize this time of year brings many requests for donations to a variety of charities and needs, but the need is great. Bob, our Men’s Ministry Development Leader, has been working with Pastor Dexter Bennet of Truth and Life Ministries in Bridgeport where their church serves the local community in a variety of ways, with food pantry services, getting homeless and homebound people to medical appointments, shelters and to church on Sundays etc. Their Church van which is used for the lion’s share of their ministry outreach developed mechanical issues beyond repair. They are currently holding a fund raiser to acquire a replacement. I was hoping men across the diocese might be willing to donate something to the cause. Even smaller donations would add up here given our numbers and would be much appreciated.
