Heart of Giving – A gift that continues to give.

the-heart-of-giving-2016Heart of Giving is a thoughtful way to spread the spirit of the holiday season and is a great way to recognize friends, family members, and business associates. When you make a donation, you receive Heart of Giving cards to give to people on your list. All of the proceeds benefit the Mission and Outreach Ministries of Saint Michael.

Heart of Giving donations support the following outreach ministries:

The Good Samaritan Fund

Administered by Saint Michael’s clergy, the Good Samaritan Fund provides non-judgmental assistance and hope to non-parishioners in need.

Tela, Honduras Mission Trip

For more than a decade Saint Michael parishioners have spent a week in Tela, Honduras and surrounding communities providing Christian education, dental care, and overall hygiene programs to area school children. The teams also repair, restore, or build community projects.

Amistad Bolivia Mission Trip

Saint Michael and All Angels supports Casa Esperanza at the Amistad Mission’s La Villa providing a home and hope to abandoned and abused children of Cochabamba, Bolivia. In addition to funds, our parishioners each year travel to Bolivia to work with the children.

Honduras Threads

For 15 years, Honduras Threads has enabled women in rural areas to earn money in their own communities to better feed, house and educate their families and provide them with medical care. This year the five informal co-ops became a social enterprise under Honduran law. Honduras Threads teaches the women embroidery and sewing techniques, the skills to run their own business, provides designs and donated fabrics, and markets their beautifully hand-embroidered products. Through our volunteer efforts all year long and our mission trips once a year, we strengthen lives through work, pride and faith.
