Blessings, Many great things are happening at our non-profit ministry here in Destiny USA, along with some challenges that are so characteristic in our continuing journey toward Christ.
Challenges always exist in furthering our ministry here at TFP and this year is no exception. The parking garage next to us has been under construction for the past several months, requiring people to park in the opposite garage and walk a longer distance. Due to this, the number of visitors this year has been dramatically reduced. It is expected that construction will be completed over the next few months. Because our fiscal year ends June 30th we are appealing to our friends and supporters for a financial donation at this time to help offset the effect of this construction in order to end the fiscal year in a strong position.
We ask you to prayerfully consider making a financial contribution at this time. Your generous gift will allow us to continue and to expand our holy work. Be merciful – like the Father!
Lastly, we’d like to invite you to a special event. In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Martyrdom of St. Maximilian Kolbe, his relics will be in Syracuse at The Franciscan Place on June 3rd. The flyer with details will be in the next email. We hope you can make it!

I hope that all is well with you on this beautiful day. We have some textbooks that we are no longer using and hope that maybe you could ask and see if anyone could use them. From Sadlier we have 10 New Testament textbooks and 1 teacher guide book. 20 Morality textbooks and 2 teacher guide books.

Date: 4/5/2016 Submitted by: Paul Welch Subject: Earth Day & Francis Effect
This email went to all pastors last week. If Faith Formation and Youth Ministry people can pick up any of the works proposed or similar activities that would be great. Dear Pastors, The Catholic community has a great opportunity this coming Earth Day (April 22 -23). Media often asks what is the “Francis Effect” inside the Church itself? We have the chance to give a resounding answer.
