Jhoselyn Correa Needs Your Help
ANGELS AMONG US: I met Narci and her spirited daughter, Jhoselyn, in November 2020 one Sunday morning at 8:30am outside Holy Cross Parish as they waited for Mass to begin. With smiling eyes (since our faces were covered by masks due to COVID-19 precautions), Narci introduced herself and quickly inquired about receiving sacraments for her eight year old. Narci and Jhoselyn, devout Catholics here from Ecuador, have found a home-away-from-home at Holy Cross as they await surgery for Jhoselyn’s congenital orthopedic malformations. They both attend weekly Bible Study for Kids with Mrs. Barbara Purnell, participated in our Advent Program, and are currently working closely with Darin Williams to ensure that Jhoselyn can receive her First Penance (Feb 27th) and First Communion (Feb 28th) prior to her pending surgery, scheduled on March 3rd. As of January, 27th, the Correa family was in need of just over $10,000, according to a GoFundMe account setup on their behalf, to help cover their medical and living expenses. To learn more about this beautiful family and their inspiring story, please refer to the article below. To donate, visit gofundme.com/f/a-better-life-for-jhoselyn-abigail.
