Too Good Not to Share!

I had the distinct privilege of “attending” = Zoom, the monthly gathering of the Immaculate Conception fraternity yesterday.  During the business meeting, it was reported that there was a certain amount of  money in the “Poor Box”.  The minister, Amanda Jamnicky, OFS, explained for my benefit just what the Poor Box is.  Every month a box is left on the table during the gathering and everyone throws in whatever change they have on them.  When the amount reaches $50, the money is given to a member of the fraternity.  (They are going down the list of members alphabetically) That member then donates the $50 to his or her favorite charity. What a truly Franciscan apostolate! – Helping the poor and including everyone in the fraternity!  Well done, Immaculate Conception, well done!
