Give To The Max Day

Since 2005, Lorena Klinnert and a group of friends have raised money for the Bluefields Children’s Fund which supports a food program and school expenses for children in Bluefields, a very poor coastal area of Nicaragua. In her letter of support, Sister Joanne Klinnert said: “My sister Lorena and the small group of people that work with her are doing what we who first settled in Nicaragua set before ourselves: to do what is to be done.”

On Friday, November 16, at 7:00 pm Lorena Klinnert is holding a fund-raiser at 300 Marshall Ave. 3, in St. Paul, Minnesota for the children of Bluefields, Nicaragua. Come hear the story of the team that provides funds to continue the ministry which provides a meal a day of beans and rice –with a little meat added a few days a week — for 120 children a day. This program was prompted by a missionary couple who runs the local clinic and noticed many malnourished and underweight children. The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota is a community of Catholic women religious who walk in the very real footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. “We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.”Give to the Max Day 2012 Coming Soon
