Marian Helper Spring 2023

The Marian Fathers assigned to Holy Family Parish in Kharkiv, one of the hardest-hit cities in Ukraine, have sent a message to all you generous Marian Helpers whose prayers and support have been so indispensable since the war began. They write: At Holy Family Parish in Kharkiv, run by the Congregation of Marian Fathers, we have good facilities where we and volunteers can sort and donate needed items to people who have suffered as a result of Russian aggression. We want to thank our benefactors from different parts of the world, especially our benefactors from the U.S.A. for their generosity and constant prayers. Your support, both material and spiritual, is extremely important to us and the war-stricken people of Ukraine. Our sincere thanks to Fr. Chris Alar, MIC, director of the Marian Helpers Center in the U.S.A., and all members of the Association of Marian Helpers in the U.S.A. for their tireless financial assistance and shipping of essential medical supplies.
