Sharing Families-Rwanda

Due to the fantastic efforts of the students and faculty of St. Tars, on Friday December 20th, they raised enough money to send 10 Rwandan children to school. This spirit of this generosity that they display means a child’s life on the other side of world has been changed from hopeless to hopeful. The students and staff of St. Tars will have a lifetime impact on these children.

They deserve a thousand thank yous………

Their contributions will give a child a hand up with tuition, a uniform, school supplies and hygiene products for a year. More importantly they now know that they have a family in the world.

There is still time to participate. The cost to fund a child for 1 year is $50. Please make your checks payable to St. Tarcissus and note on the check “Station School”. Your donation can be placed in the weekly collection or dropped off at the rectory.

Thank you to everyone that is participating in the Sharing Families project. You are truly a special community.
