Those who attend the Lenten mission at St. Michael Parish in Marquette from March 19-22 will get the opportunity to sponsor an individual through Unbound. Jennings did her homework before becom- ing iliated with this organization. On the lookout for a good Catholic charity, she went to the charitywatch.org website and discovered Unbound with its top charity rating. Theyre great stewards not only to peo- ple they help support, but to their donors They have a respectful way of dealing with the populations they serve. Her trip to Guatemala was such a won- derful experience that Jennings said she has told the children that she will be back. I want to watch them grow up, she ex- plained. Editor's note: More information on Unbound can be obtained from attending the St. Michael Parish mission mentioned above and going to the website, www.un- bound.org. FROM PAGE 18 St. Michael Catholic Parish of Marquette welcomes all inter- ested persons to participate in the Lenten Mission it will be hosting from March 19-22. Oblate Father John Graden and Mary Sellars Malloy will lead those gathered in song, Scripture, prayer and reflection on how to make Time for God in a Busy World. This mission will explore the times of our lives using the insights that come to us from the spirituality tradition called Salesian, which flows from the legacy of St. Francis de Sales, St. Jane de Chantal, and those who have followed them. The mission will begin on Sunday, March 19, at 3:30 p.m. at St. Michael Church. It will conclude at 5 p.m. EDT with a potluck supper in the Monsignor Zryd Parish Center. From Monday-Wednesday, March 20-22, the mission will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. EDT in the church, followed by a social in the parish center. The final session on March 22 will include the celebration of the Mass. Time for God in a Busy World is sponsored by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales in partnership with Unbound, which is the largest Catholic sponsorship group in the United States. Mission participants will be given the opportunity to sponsor children and the aged at Catholic mission sites in the third world. St. Michael Parish and many of its parishioners sponsor individuals overseas through Unbound.
