Thank You!

Your intentions will be included in our prayers for donors on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, August 15.

Your intentions will be included in our prayers for donors on the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and offered up at a special Vatican Mass by His Eminence Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the Papal Almoner for the Dicastery for the Service of Charity.

His Eminence Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the Papal Almoner and first Prefect for the Dicastery for the Service of Charity has been instrumental in our efforts to provide relief, resources and hope to the poor and displaced. As we pray for your special intentions, please remember to include those needy souls in your own prayers. Tragically, there are many children, families and elderly people who continue to lack basic necessities like food, water and safe housing. Pray our worldwide ministry partners remain safe, strong and able to provide help where it is needed most!

God Bless You!

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski.
His Eminence Cardinal Krajewski will offer the sacrifice of the Mass at the Vatican for Cross Catholic Outreach supporters and partners.

Please pray for the families of children who experience insecurity due to violence, and for children who suffer psychological effects so that they can emerge from the trauma and be happy children who build peace.

We thank you, Lord, because in this social center many children, adolescents and women find a space where, beyond bodily food and food in wisdom, they receive care, opportunities and love as worthy children of God. Lord, we ask you to remain in this sacred space where we welcome so many boys and girls. May it always be a space in which you feel loved, respected and can flourish fully. May those of us who work in this Center always see your privileged love in children, and may they bring us closer to living your Kingdom project. Lord, may each child in the Children’s Kitchen and Nursery be appreciated and loved in their families, may their lives be protected and in the midst of their poverty, may they have food, education and a lot of love that strengthens them. Lord, we entrust to you all the people in the elderly program, so that in each encounter they feel appreciated, respected in a climate of freedom and welcome. May their lives improve with our efforts to provide them with good food, attention and care, so that by dignifying them they know how important they are to our society.
