The generous end-of-the-year donations toThe Diocesan Council Emergency Fund are sincerely appreciated. They are so helpful. Unfortunately, needs remain. Generous donations, large or small, are needed for this crucial emergency fund.

Go to Columbus Voice of the Poor for information about a microloan program for the poor and to build a fund to back these loans to help the local poor avoid predatory lenders.
