I’m a little late in posting this, but Chris Cash of the Catholic Company tells me that they’ve not met their goal yet, so there’s still a need. From the Catholic Company website:

The Catholic Company has undertaken a challenge, together with the Missionaries of the Poor (MOP), to send 5000 (or more!) catechisms to the poor and needy at MOP missions in Jamaica, India, the Philippines, Haiti, Uganda & Kenya. We are sending the first 500 catechisms, and hope our loyal customers will help us send at least another 4500 copies.
Here’s how it works:

  • Click on the product you wish to send.
  • Select the quantity you wish to send.
  • Add the items to your shopping cart.
  • Select any personal items you wish to purchase for yourself and proceed through the checkout process.
  • Items you choose to send to the Missionaries of the Poor will be packaged and sent on your behalf. You will not be charged shipping on items going to the Missionaries of the Poor. Items you purchase for yourself will be packaged and sent to the shipping address you indicate. Shipping charges will apply to these items.

As an ADDED BONUS, we will send a rosary and an instructional prayer poster for each order you place for the Missionaries of the Poor.
