I apologize for not updating this blog sooner. Being gone from Holy Rosary even for a couple of weeks meant that I had a whole of tasks piled up for me when I returned. When I was in Africa I felt like I had all the time in the word to write these brief articles. I no longer have such a luxury. I was also waiting for the last few donations to trickle in. While most people used Give-Send-Go (via the links on this blog), there were several who simply wanted to write checks.
In any case, the good news is that we raised about $11,000 USD! This is an incredible figure and it will assist the student brothers in their formation, most of whom are seeking ordination to the priesthood. I have sent the funds to our Development Office in Oakland, California where it will be dispersed into their account immediately.
