Catholic support of our troops and veterans
Thank you for your prayers for our troops, especially those in harm's way.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
~ prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Thanks to the Knights of Columbus councils who have provided gifts
of books and religious articles! May God bless you for your generosity.
We are proud to serve those who make our country great.
Since 2006 our group has been sending care packages of camouflage rosaries, scapulars, Bibles, catechisms, and good books to troops serving our country in war zones and troops preparing for deployment. We are here to support them in spirit as they give so much for us. The items are distributed to individual members of our Armed Forces through their chaplains. Our benefactors include Knights of Columbus, police and firefighters, Catholic families and individuals from across the USA. Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom is our patron saint.
We are a small group of volunteer civilians who offer our gifts and services on our own initiative. In compliance with DoD regulations, contributions made through this site have not been requested or endorsed by any federal employee, active duty servicemember or branch of the military.
