Together in Mission: The Spirit of Giving at Holy Angels Elementary
Each year the faithful throughout our Archdiocese contribute millions of dollars to help our parishes and schools most in need. This annual effort provides funds to cover critical operating expenses such as insurance, utility bills, tuition shortfalls, textbooks, and unforeseen emergency needs at sites where offertory is not sufficient to keep the parish or school operational.
Last spring, students at Holy Angels Elementary School in Arcadia joined in “Change for Change,” a penny drive to raise funds for Together in Mission. Students were divided into two teams and for a week, filled two big jars with coins. At the end of the week, students had collected over $912 – which they donated to Together in Mission. Thank you Holy Angels students, families, teachers, Principal Amy Dyrek and Pastor Fr. Kevin Rettig for living the gospel and helping others!
