That They May Know Thee

Last week we had the second meeting of the members of The Cardinal Cushing Club at our offices in Braintree.  The Club is made up of regular donors to The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, many of whom contribute on a monthly or quarterly basis.  Because our donors come from parishes all over the Archdiocese, we give them the opportunity to meet each other two or three times a year for Mass and a presentation on a mission themed topic.
At our meeting last week we shared the video produced by our National Office for World Mission Sunday.  This year’s video focused on the work of Sister Clara and the Salesian Sisters at Marialaya Children’s Home in Chennai, India.  These dedicated Sisters help to rescue young girls from child trafficking and child labor.  Every day, all over India, hundreds of young girls are taken from their homes and families, forced into child labor or to be beggars on the street or sold as domestic help.  Your contributions to The Society of the Propagation of the Faith assist the Sisters and many other missionaries to do God’s work.

Following the film the members had the privilege of hearing from Father Patrick Byrne, a missionary from the Society of the Divine Word(SVD) who has had extensive mission experience in Ecuador and as the General Secretary for the Missionary Childhood Association at the Vatican.  Father Byrne reminded us of our close connection to our Holy Father as representatives of the official missionary activity of Pope Francis all over the world.
I invite you to become a member of the Cardinal Cushing Club.  For more information you may telephone our office at 617.542.1776, send us an e-mail at, or write to us at 66 Brooks Drive in Braintree 02184.  Our website,, also has a page dedicated to the Cardinal Cushing Club listed under The Society for the Propagation of the Faith

Your ongoing support is essential to the work of our dedicated missionaries and makes possible the fulfillment of the motto of Cardinal Cushing, That They May Know Thee.
-Rev. Rodney J. Copp, JCL
