1000 benefactors

When parishioners sought St Jean-Marie Vianney’s support in raising funds for his parish in Ars, the holy Curé replied:

“Why not spend more time on your knees, praying for help, in front of the Tabernacle?”

We need 1,000 GENEROUS BENEFACTORS to make a four-fold pledge in the spirit St Jean-Marie Vianney’s advice.
