(C.F.C.A. Christian Foundation for Children and Aging)
UNBOUND or C.F.C.A. is a lay Catholic Organization serving the poor at mission sites around the world, in fact in over 23 countries. This organization helps children and the aging who struggle daily to survive; who live in poverty; and who need the help of their brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is our continuous efforts from our 8th grade Confirmation class that has helped provide food, medical care, basic clothing and education to a young girl from the Philippines, named Learnie for the past 8 years. It is our privilege of our Confirmation Candidates to be able to contribute to her sponsorship.
The Sick and Homebound
Three different times per year our 4th grade students create comforting cards for our sick and homebound parishioners. The students take great care in creating cards that are very cheerful and uplifting for those that are in need of some cheering up. We always receive several ‘thank you’ notes from card recipients conveying their gratitude and the joy that this little gesture has given them!
