This weekend’s POOR BOX Contributions go to The Samaritan Women.

The Samaritan Women is a national Christian organization providing restorative care to survivors, and bringing about and end to domestic human trafficking through awareness, prevention, and advocacy. On Sunday December 17 following the 10:30 Mass, The Samaritan Women will give us a presentation on human trafficking.  Human trafficking is modern day slavery.   In its most basic form, human trafficking is fraudulently, forcibly, or coercively using another for purposes of exploitation. The two main types are sex trafficking and labor trafficking.   Human trafficking is becoming the fastest growing criminal activity in the world.

Human trafficking deprives people of their human rights and freedoms. It is a global health risk, and it fuels organized crime.  As Christians, we are called to be aware of this grave injustice to our humanity and support services that dismantle it wherever and whenever possible.

Please join us in the Chapel of Grace following the 10:30 Mass for this important presentation.
