Tornado Relief Concert

May 6, 2011

This morning when I stopped to pick up the food for my Meals-on-two-Wheels run I was greeted with the below poster about the Tornado Relief Concert. It sounds like fun and you will be helping some battered St Louisans restore their lives. Just think for a minute how your routine would change without a home. My pastor at Holy Spirit Church told me he knows of 200 families in our parish alone that have lost their homes. The church is in the process of taking a formal census of the exact total but 200 lost homes out of one parish is substantial especially if you happen to be one of the unfortunate ones who lost their home. There is a link below so you can sample the Mitzi MacDonald band. If the music is not “your groove” consider a donation to help those who lost their homes. I am sure there are several funds set up to help but I know of one for sure. Our church is collecting money for those who were impacted by the tornado. Father Rich will do an excellent job of overseeing how the money is allocated. If you wish to help make your check payable to the Holy Spirit Tornado Fund and mail to our church rectory at

I would like to attend the concert but I am already committed to serve as the Innkeeper May 7th for our homeless outreach program which helps provide shelter for women and Moms with kids.

 Thank you for you consideration
