Each Friday we collect donations to benefit a different community-based organization in Washington, DC. Our RCIA Catechumens will organize and serve the meal on March 24, and the beneficiary of the evening's almsgiving will be Centro Tepeyac.
Consider spending your early Friday evening with St. Matthew's family and friends - come for the 5:30pm Mass, 6pm Stations of the Cross, and end with a shared meal and a great opportunity of almsgiving.
Please visit Centro Tepeyac's website http://centrotepeyac.org/en/ from which the following is excerpted and summarized.
