2021 'All-virtual' Saint Nicholas Serata for Charity
Welcome to the 2021 St Nicholas Serata Campaign on Go Fund Me!
Despite the limits we continue to struggle with under COVID-19, St. Patrick‘s Parish in Rome has not forgotten its commitment to others, and especially those local charities who have relied on its generosity for years.
Taking a cue from Pope Francis’ recent visit to refugee camps in Greece, and the needs of our own trusted partners, this year’s beneficiaries will be: Centro Astalli - Casa di Giorgia and the Joel Nafuma Refugee Center. Both of these charities assist refugees here in Rome and in the coming days you will learn more about their specific needs through St. Patrick’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
Your tax deductible contributions will be collected through dedicated Go Fund Me accounts and go directly to each charity. This campaign will run through the entire Christmas season, ending January 9, 2022.
“Jesus solemnly tells us that he is present in the stranger, in the refugee, in those who are naked and hungry.” [Pope Francis, 5 December 2021]
This Christmas, may we all recognize Jesus in the needy and respond with loving generosity.
