“Live simply so that others may simply live.” -Mother Teresa

As we begin our Lenten journey towards Easter, let us remember that Lent is not only a time to turn away from sin, but also a time to to help us return to the simple things: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.
This Lent, as an act of almsgiving, consider donating Help Iraq’s Urgent Cancer Relief Fund to help give our brothers and sisters in Christ a fighting chance against cancer. These cases are especially urgent, and their families are desparate to help their loved ones.

Project Justice

Project Justice is an organization of volunteer attorneys and legal professionals who assist refugees with legal issues in both the United States and overseas. Refugee representation includes both the advocacy of immigration issues and uniting families separated by unjustified visa denials. More recently, Project Justice has been working tirelessly with detained individuals who are at risk of deportation. Attorneys have provided legal counsel to the detainees and are guiding families in finding solutions during this difficult time. A typical immigration case may require months of research and court hearing attendance by the lawyer and many of the Project Justice attorneys are providing services on a pro bono or low bono basis. Project Justice has also set up a legal fund to assist families that cannot afford a lawyer. The Project Justice legal fund will be used for attorney representation for individuals with a verifiable need. Since Project Justice is a part of, a 501(c)(3) organization, your contribution is fully deductible.
