Hearts for Haiti

Thank You 10 Pins –A special thanks to 10 Pins Bowling in Franklin! Their fundraiser on

December 8 netted $500 for OLG Hearts for Haiti. Thank you 10 Pins, and thanks to all who joined in the fun that day.

Thank You Trivia Players and Supporters – Thanks to all who came out and played trivia at the 8 th Annual OLG Trivia Night. Hope you had a blast! Thanks also to all who

supported the event through prayer for a successful event, volunteer hours, and donations.

Extra Funds Sent to St. Georges – The majority of funds sent to St. Georges go directly toward supporting the education of children. In fact, we are committed to providing $42,000 annually for teachers, administrators, and other costs associated with St. Georges

College (grades 7-12). We also often get requests for special needs for the parish. Earlier this month, we sent $5,135 to repair damages to the rectory caused by last year’s earthquake, and nearly $900 for repairs to the Land Rover used by Fr. Claribert (the pastor). It is only through the generosity of all who support OLG Hearts for Haiti that we are able to help St. Georges Parish in these ways.
