Keep the Wheel Turning
Our next Keep the Wheel Turning event will be in Thursday, April 27, 2017, 6-9pm. We will announce a date soon!
Thank you for joining us at our Keep the Wheel Turning event on April 19, 2016. What a joy it was to celebrate 10 years of partnering with the Coon Rapids community in continuing the legacy of Fr. Reiser’s ministry in Haiti. Over $36,000 was raised at our event, and an additional $8,700 was received in mail-in donations for a total of over $44,300.
Your donations will support the needs of 181 vulnerable children living in two orphanages in Port au Prince. It allows our partners in Haiti to pay staff and caregivers, provide medical care, food, water, education, diapers and personal hygiene products at two orphanages on an ongoing basis. But it’s bigger than that. The Sisters and Brothers who care for these children dedicate their lives to serving the poor, and when we respond generously to their needs, we join in their mission in serving the least among us.
Our founder, Father Reiser, had a heart for orphans and spoke of our duty as Christians to care for them. Together we continue his ministry of caring for these beloved children of God.
