Bryan St. Patrick Gives Bibles
A gift given out of love: Bryan St. Patrick Catholic School gives bibles to Charities’ clients
Students provide God’s word
Lisa Cinadr, Principal of St. Patrick School in Bryan, says that doing things for others is nothing new for her pre-school through eighth grade students. So, during Right to Read week in March, it was only natural for them to spend the money they’d raised selling mission lunches on 39 New American bibles.
The bibles they purchased will go to Catholic Charities clients at La Posada family shelter and elsewhere.
“We’re thrilled to be able to pray with and provide people with the word of God,” Rodney Schuster, Charities Director, said. “There are times when our clients ask for a bible, and now we’ll be able to say, yes, we have one right here.
“We’re grateful to St. Patrick Catholic School and all the students who participated,” Rodney said.
“We are hoping to encourage the people who will be using the bibles,” Lisa said. “So one of our classes is taking the time to inscribe the flyleaf in each copy.
“We’d like people to know that these bibles are provided out of love.”
