To all Friends and Benefactors of CMS:
RE: “Supporting the Mission of the Comboni Missionary Sisters”
We, the Comboni Missionary Sisters, greet you and your family, confident that you all are well.
We were hopeful that this year we would hold our Annual traditional Fund-raising Dinner. However, realizing that covid-19 cases continue to increase in some areas, we opted to repeat the last year’s “Take away meal” event.
In our December-January Bulletin, perhaps many of you read that we raised $17,526.07 net, including monetary and in-kind donations. Thus, once again, we are inviting you and your families to continue supporting us in this year’s event, which will be held at our driveway at 1307 Lakeside Ave, Richmond, VA. on November 13, 2021, from 3-5 pm.
We are hoping to have a higher income than the last year. Would you consider donating at least $15.00 per dish to help us achieve our mission? With your support and generosity, you will help our sisters in the community of Bergamo, Italy, who were significantly affected by the pandemic. Also, you will collaborate for our Student Endowment Fund and some mission projects from our sisters in Latin America.
Find enclosed the card with the menu, and please, send your request by October 31st. We appreciate your spreading the word with family and friends.
We take this opportunity to express our best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving 2021. Hopefully, this year a “presential’ family gathering will be possible to strengthen family bonds. May God bless you all!
On behalf of the Comboni Missionary Sisters in the U.S.A.,
