Your Donations at Work
Dear Friends and Benefactors,
We are sure that you are wondering how your contributions are being used. First of all, in order to be good stewards, we Discalced Carmelites are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of this magnificent Shrine dedicated to Mary, Help of Christians. A few years ago, the Shrine was given the privilege of being raised to the status of a Minor Basilica. We try to maintain a religious atmosphere in order that the pilgrims might continue to achieve a greater love and devotion for Mary, Help of Christians, and through Mary be drawn closer to Christ.
We also must mention that each year we give a large portion of our income to our father Provincial. These funds are then distributed to assist our less fortunate communities, especially our mission in Nairobi, Kenya. There are many vocations coming out of this area, and we have to respond to their needs.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Cyril Guise, O.C.D.
