Dear Friends of Carmel,

Greetings of Peace and Love.

This year the Sisters of Mount Carmel have joined the iGiveCatholic program of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. iGiveCatholic is an online giving day for all Catholic communities. It is a call to share our blessings with the Church and those the Church helps and supports in our communities. Giving Tuesday is a special way for us to celebrate our unique Catholic heritage. #iGiveCatholic on #GivingTuesday is the first ever day of Catholic Giving in our nation.

Your donations will be used to support the mission of the Sisters of Mount Carmel in Timor-Leste. We are now in our third year since founding the mission. One of the ministries of the Sisters of Mount Carmel in Timor-Leste is teaching catechism to the children in the villages. Our immediate needs are for classroom supplies and equipment for the catechism classes in Timor-Leste and additional funds for their feeding program. The sisters are teaching the children in their chapel since the
y do not have a classroom. Since most of the people in the villages are poor, children do not have proper nutrition which is why the sisters need funds for their feeding program every Sunday after their catechism classes.

This year the global day of giving will be on November 29, 2016, Tuesday from 12:00 midnight until 11:59 p.m. Between November 18th and 28th you can donate in advance of the giving day. Your credit card will not be charged until November 29th. All transactions are secure and donations are tax deductible. Join us in showing that Catholics are the most generous givers. What better way to thank God for his continued blessings than to give back to our community? Help us spread the word about #iGiveCatholic to your friends, family, and colleagues by email and social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
