Bread For the World - Offering of Letters

OFFERING OF LETTERS 
 

BREAD FOR THE WORLD 2017

Advocate Congress to renew programs to feed the hungry in our country.

Bread for the World (BFTW) is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger both at home and abroad.  BFTW members support, with bi-partisan political involvement, measures that address the causes of hunger. Thousands of churches from many faith traditions take part in this offering of letters.  

"For I was hungry and you gave me food. I was thirsty and you gave me drink." 
                                                                                                               
Mt. 26: 35.

Thank you to all parishioners who wrote or signed letters to our congressmen in Washington D.C. advocating Congress to protect programs that meet the needs of hungry children in the U.S.
