Faithful Catholic or modern-day pharisee? Sometimes I might be a bit of both.
I received a request for financial support from the Carmelite Community of the Word, Gallitzin, PA on 4/17. I live in Massachusetts. I, too, would like to know if this is an order that is worth supporting. Their web site identifies the Sisters but not their organization leaders or Board of Directors, etc. Am definitely looking for that before supporting them.
The CCW are a wonderful group of sisters from the Altoona Johnstown Diocese. They do fantastic work and service an 8 county region in Central Western PA. They were found in I believe 1969 or 1970. They have played a very vibrant role in my personal Catholic upbringing and have done the same for many others. Are they worth contributing to? I would't hesitate to support them. They are small in number but mighty in their works and dedication to service. Jo-Ann Semko
