On Friday, January 16th, the Wolfington Center at Cabrini College hosted a fundraising gathering to benefit Cabrini Mission Corps.
Three of this year’s missioners – Martin Garcia, Matt Kaehler and Connor White – are missioned at Cabrini College. In anticipation of this event in a message to the campus community, the missioners wrote, “Each of us has chosen to offer the beginnings of our post-graduate lives to volunteering with the Cabrini Mission Corps here at [Cabrini] College, and we couldn’t be more blessed for the experience so far.
“Our service with CMC lasts for a little over 9 months – something close to 270 days. We are nearing the halfway point of our time in
community and at the College. The days are flying by. The three of us are hoping you’ll join us to celebrate a wonderful first half – and to look ahead to an even better second half.”
As part of its fundraiser anyone who donated $5 or more was welcome to wear jeans for the day and to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast in the Wolfington Center.
The missioners’ message continued, “In addition to the three of us ministering to the college, this year Cabrini Missioners are also working with immigration and anti-human trafficking advocacy in New York City. Cabrini Mission Corps holds such a special place in each of our hearts.
Any support through donations, big or small, helps to make these opportunities possible for future missioners.”
The missioners encouraged everyone to show off their favorite jeans, enjoy good food, good company, and help support the Cabrini Mission Corps and the impact it can have in our communities.
Given the large turnout, it was evident the missioners’ invitation was received with enthusiasm.
