2 My Dear Parishioners, Holy Family Mission Blakely, Georgia (Early County) Glenmary Father John Brown, Pastor This weekend, we are having a second collection to support the Glenmary Mission. Something about our adopted mission: Holy Family Mission in Blakely, Georgia opened over 25 years ago. Glenmary Home Missioners and Father John Brown arrived in January of Father John previously served a parish in Swainsboro, Georgia, about 200 miles away. Father John also serves St. Luke mission in Randolph County as the sacramental minister. Susan Sweet is the pastoral coordinator of that Glenmary mission. Glenmary also serves nearby Miller and Clay counties, which have no Catholic churches Only 1 to 3 percent of the population in these areas is Catholic, and the poverty level is almost double the national average. (National average is about 15% of people living below the poverty level; in Early County, almost 30% of people live below the poverty level.) The main business in the area is agriculture - peanuts and cotton. When Father John arrived in Blakely, perhaps 20 people attended Mass. Today, about people attend the English language Mass, and about attend the Spanish language Mass. There were no religious education classes, no first Communion classes and little community presence before Glenmary s arrival. Father John immediately went about establishing religious education classes and, for the past two summers, a Vacation Bible School was organized, with many children and adults participating. Many parishioners had never experienced Holy Week services and were eager to learn more. Much education went into Lenten soup supper meetings so that parishioners could prepare for Holy Week. These suppers also served as community building events. Holy Family now has established RCIA classes as well. Father John has also been busy reaching out to the community, urging parishioners to participate in food and clothing pantries and a thrift shop. The church community is also being encouraged to evangelize and reach out to the larger community. Father John says that he cannot grow the church by himself! Father John has also reached out to neighboring churches, has written well received articles for the local newspaper, and is the Rotary Club chaplain. Part of Glenmary s charism is ministering to all residents of the counties we serve, not just our parishioners. Father John visits and supports the local migrant workers, assisting them with both spiritual and material needs. He challenges his parishioners to bring Christ to others as well. Thank you for supporting our Holy Family Mission. May God bless you! Fr. Herrera
