BIRTHDAY CLUB CONTINUES
Last January, Father Frank became the inaugural member of Holy Innocents newly formed Birthday Club. Because we are very lucky to live on our beloved Long Beach Island and our struggles are minimal compared to those of others as is evidenced by the families we supported this past Christmas on our Giving Tree, we would like to be able to give some financial support to others in need.
It is in that spirit that the Birthday Club was formed. Each birthday represents another year that God has given us. Instead of waiting for others to celebrate us, this is an opportunity to celebrate and thank Him for the gift of another year. We collected over $2100 this past year from some very “young”, generous celebrants! We sent $1000 to the International Justice Mission and the rest of the money has been dispersed locally. Membership is simple. Look for a birthday card from Holy Innocents prior to your big day. Enclosed will be a note about the club and an envelope to place in the offering plate. Please consider donating $1 dollar for each year of life you have been given. If you are blessed to have been given many years, please give what you can. The Birthday Club supports Holy Innocents and all its missions.
Thank you, Kim Sparks

THANKS HOLY INNOCENTS!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Holy Innocents for their support of the work of the International Justice Mission this year. We can be very proud of the sacrifices we have made to join the fight against victimization of the poor, especially in the areas of human trafficking and violence against the less fortunate.
Violence is an everyday threat to the poor. It’s as much a part of daily life as hunger, disease or homelessness. Established laws are rarely enforced in the developing world—so criminals continue to rape, enslave, traffic and abuse the poor without fear. The International Justice Mission believes everyone deserves to be safe. Their global team has spent nearly 20 years on the front lines fighting some of the worst forms of violence, and they are proving that their model works. IJM partners with local authorities to rescue victims of violence, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors, and strengthen justice systems.
They have rescued more than 34 thousand people from oppression, trained over 46,000 local officials, and are helping to protect more than 21 million people from violence.
TOGETHER WE CAN END SLAVERY!
God’s Blessings to everyone celebrating a birthday or anniversary in January & February!
