” We set forth our petitions before God, not in order to make known to Him our needs and desires, but rather so that we ourselves may realize that in these things it is necessary to turn to God for help. “
– St Thomas Aquinas

As our country responds to the COVID-19 coronavirus threat, our prayers are with each one of our friends and supporters. Please, stay safe, and above all else, remain strong in the peace of Christ.

In spite of these new challenges, Cross Catholic Outreach continues to serve the poorest of the poor, working through our trusted and capable overseas partners. We continue to:

  •     ●  Dig clean water wells in countries such as Kenya and Nicaragua to prevent waterborne illness and chronic dehydration.
  •     ●  Build safe, sanitary homes in places such as Guatemala so families are protected from rainstorms and insect infestations.
  •     ●  Provide daily meals for vulnerable children who would otherwise not get the nutrients they need to grow up healthy and strong.
  •     ●  Distribute medicine and medical supplies to clinics and hospitals serving patients who cannot afford care.

Additionally, we would like to hear your prayer requests. The staff at Cross Catholic Outreach pray daily for our donors, and we encourage you to send us your prayer intentions … for whatever is on your heart.  We believe God hears our prayers, and we are trusting in his mercy to carry us through this storm.

May God bless you and keep you safe.

James J. Cavnar

Our Daily Prayer for You, Our Donors

God and Father, Sustainer and Giver of all life, we come before you today in obedience with thankful hearts for what you have done through each and every one of our donors, whom you empower to bless the poor.  We thank you for their faithful and sacrificial giving, and we ask that you continue to bless and protect them. 

We also thank you for the privilege of serving as your instrument to minister to the poorest of the poor.  As you continue to move on the hearts of your people to faithfully give, we pray you grant wisdom to the leaders of this organization to be faithful stewards of your resources, so that we can play our part in fulfilling your holy mandate of serving orphans, widows and those in desperate need.

We ask all these things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – now and always.
