The recent campaign on behalf of our friends at NPH was a tremendous success! Our goal was $37,000 to fund education for children in the Mexico home. Thanks to our youth fundraisers, parishioners who fundraised and all of you who donated, we exceeded the goal by collecting $54,431.

John Deinhart, CEO, NPH USA and Andrea Nahigian, the new Donor Relations Director on the East Coast, recently paid us a visit to thank us in person. John says: “The St. John-St. Paul community has been a true blessing in the lives of countless children of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos. This community truly embodies our Gospel call, ‘whatever you do for the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you do for me.’  With your help, NPH can now send 42 students to school to receive a 7th education. In the countries where we serve, education beyond the sixth grade is considered a ‘private education’ as the government does not require or fund education past primary school levels. Statistics show that those with only a sixth-grade education are destined to a life of poverty because they will be denied jobs that require more education. Poverty, then, is perpetuated in endless cycles. But thanks to the St. Paul & St. John parish communities, these children are no longer a statistic. They now have a fighting chance”.

Andrea is looking forward to working with us in the future.  “The St. John-St Paul community is a prime example that shows what a community can do for others when they come together. NPH USA, and the 7,500 children we provide services to, are beyond grateful. Thank you for supporting our family and allowing us to meet the basic needs of children. On behalf of all the children who have the promise of a brighter future because of you, we cannot be more grateful.”

Thank you!
