This year’s Lenten offerings will be collected for our Good Samaritan Fund. The Social Ministry Committee administers this fund whose purpose is intended to provide funds to predominately Coloradoans who have suffered a personal or natural disaster. The broad areas of assistance include help for natural or man-made disasters, people in need, health problems, or housing needs.
Over the past several years, contributions to this fund were used to buy trees for Black Forest fire victims, a foster parent who had cystic fibrosis, and victims of the Canadian wildfires (they had helped us in the past). Recently, the Social Ministry Committee spent money from this fund to help Colleen Little Moon in Pine Ridge purchase a used car when hers broke down.
We really appreciate your contributions during Lent to this fund!
