Help faithful Catholic family to repair a vehicle

Hi! My name is Matthew. My wife and I's vehicle broke down earlier this week and is in need of repair. She works as a special education teacher and is split working between two elementary schools in the district. We have four children, two of whom I pick up from school, and I work overnights.

Because of our schedule and situation, we are not able to presently afford a new vehicle and having only one working vehicle makes it quite challenging.

An added challenge will occur on Sundays as we need to fulfill our Sunday Mass obligations and I have been frequently scheduled to work on Sundays so we have had to split up for Mass on occasion.

Two of our sons are autistic and routine is a stabilizing force for them. Not only does it make the day go smoother for them during school it really make life livable as an up-ended routine has led to frequent meltdowns throughout the day.

I humbly ask for your help at this time. If you are able to donate $5 or even $2 or $3 in my family's time of need I would greatly appreciate it. If not able to donate, please keep us in your prayers.
