Donate to My Mission Projects Fund

I am a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Louisville. As part of my retirement, I now do volunteer mission work in the poor Diocese of Kingstown in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As of January 2019, I have made ten trips personally and sent over a hundred boxes of needed supplies. I have also worked with Supplies Overseas to send medical supplies for use in local health care facilities. 
So far, with the help of friends and money I have made from leading priest retreats mainly in the United States and Canada, we have renovated the rundown Pastoral Centre (bishop’s house, chancery offices, my headquarters, meetings spaces and seven retreat rooms) and added a new chapel. We have sent seven young people to World Youth Day,

We have initiated a popular yearly kids’ computer camp, paid tuition for over 50 children, bought a boat motor to help a priest get to his islands, sent Christmas toys for two orphanages and kids on the outer islands, supplied school supplies and snacks for hundreds of children and funded several small church renovation projects. We have funded 3 new vans - one for the orphanages and two for local parishes. There are many incidents where we have helped individuals with personal needs, far too many to mention.

I am hoping there are others who would like to support these efforts. Just let me know what projects interest you. This blog also contains many entries about my work there. Just click on “missions” under Labels in the block on the right side of the page to see posts related to that work. There may even be future opportunities to join me on one of these trips. 
Perhaps you would like to help with some of these projects by either by donating frequent flyer miles/points (see bottom of page) or donating a few dollars once in a while? Air miles will be used to help international seminary students and volunteers who wish to work in the Caribbean missions mentioned above. Money donated will directly fund our mission projects.
