8th Graders Donate Carnival Funds

April 2, 2014

Mission Carnivalfrom 8th grade teacher, Mrs. Patterson –

Holy Cross 8th graders voted to send the proceeds from the Mission Carnival they hosted in February to Father Bob Conroy’s Mission in Guatemala.

Fr. Bob and his fellow missionary priests currently are feeding over 300 children a day who otherwise would go hungry. He has been working with the local government to secure a place to establish a food kitchen.

The 8th graders remember the year that Fr. Bob was with us at Holy Cross and wanted to help his cause for establishing a food kitchen. They recalled how he visited their classrooms and shared his life as a Missionary of Charity priest.

After our expenses for the large inflatables that were in the gym and some odds/ends carnival supplies, the 8th grade class of 2014 will be donating about $625.00 to Fr. Bob’s Guatemala Mission.
