Monday, October 17: International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

Thanks to Yolanda Tarango for the following resources from the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange.

 “There aren’t two categories of people. There aren’t some that were born to have everything, leaving the rest with nothing,
and a majority that has nothing and cannot taste the happiness
that God has created for all. The Christian society
that God wants is one in which we share the goodness
that God has given for everyone.”
-Archbishop Oscar Romero

We stand in solidarity with our Sisters and Brothers who live in poverty here in the U.S. and throughout the world by participating in prayer, fasting and action. We welcome everyone to join us in commemorating this day by participating in any or all of the following:
