Generous donors support much-needed projects in Congo and Indonesia
Throughout the Order, Crosiers have been committed to facilitating a more equitable distribution of our resources as part of what we are calling the Crosier fraternal economy. Building on a history of collaboration with and support for our brothers around the world, the Crosiers in the United States sent more than $310,000 in financial assistance to Congo and Indonesia in 2017, an initiative that continues in 2018 and beyond. It is through the generosity of individual donors and mission preaching collections that we have provided grants for the projects and support such as providing scholarships for Congolese children, rehabilitating the Crosier house in Butembo, supporting Crosier Religious Life in Papua, Indonesia, etc.
We are grateful for these gifts and the collaboration that enables these efforts. Through the course of the year Crosiers have gone to multiple parish locations around the country and told the stories about the needs of the Crosiers and the people we serve.
We invite you to read more about the Crosiers' work locally and throughout the world in this new issue of Crossview!
