Honoring Our Priests - A “Gift of a Gift” to JRS
Maya Angelou “When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
In grateful appreciation for over 40 years of blessed service to the St. Therese community, our Parish plans to honor the legacy of our Jesuit Priests with a financial gift to Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS). For those who attended mass the weekend of January 28/29, you learned that the mission of JRS is to accompany, serve and advocate for the rights of refugees and other forcibly displaced persons around the world. They work to meet refugees’ educational, health, social and other needs. With the current refugee crisis around the world, their work has never been more important. Pope Francis has asked the Jesuits to increase their impact through JRS.
"There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.” Kahlil Gibran
A joyful THANK YOU to those who went online after Masses last weekend to make their gift to JRS on behalf of our Priests. And to those who have mailed or dropped off their gift in the gift box. Our gift is already over 10% of our $25,000 goal to Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS). This is a great start! There is still time to make your gift to honor the service of our beloved Jesuits over the past 47 years. We plan to present the gift to our Priests at the end of April as we honor and thank them for THEIR many gifts to St. Therese. We will keep the donation instructions front and center for the next several weeks. See the instructions below and don’t miss this opportunity to “give with joy”, because who doesn’t need a little joy in their life? Thank you.

Mail - there are pre-addressed envelopes in the Narthex next to the welcome desk. You can take an envelope with you, enclose a check made payable to JRS with "St. Therese" written on the memo line and place it in the mail. Or place a check in an envelope, seal it and place it in the “gift box” in the Narthex and a committee member will forward all envelopes weekly to JRS. Please note: the Parish will not be opening these envelopes and processing them. They will simply be forwarded on to JRS.
*If you use your own envelope please mail it to: Jesuit Refugee Service/USA, 1016 16th Street, NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20036

We thank You that through your son, Jesus Christ, You have blessed our parish with wonderful pastoral care from the Jesuit Fathers.
Now we ask of You, with the intercession of Saint Thérèse, our patroness, that once again You send this parish holy priests who will care for our spiritual needs in the coming years. We pray that they will embody the Church of Mercy Pope Francis has described to the world. May they be outstanding leaders who will guide us on our spiritual journey, and inspire and encourage us to love and serve You in the name of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.
