Help Fr Abe educate 62 students

After several successful years at St. Martin of Tours parish in San Jose, California, Fr. Abe Antony has returned to India to live permanently as the rector of a seminary in Odisha-- one of the poorest areas in India.  He will not receive a salary for this new position.

Since most poor boys in India receive an elementary education, Fr. Abe decided to advocate for girls to receive the same education.  Starting at age 5, parent send their girls to be educated by the nuns.  

This fund will be used to support the elementary education of these young girls, but will also support post-elementary education of both boys and girls.

Currently, Fr. Abe is supporting 62 children in this process.  Through the education of these boys and girls, Fr. Abe is breaking the cycle of poverty for them and for their families.

We are so grateful to Fr. Abe, whose generosity touched our hearts when he lived with us here in California.  Let's please share our generosity with him, to provide hope for these children.
