The second collection on the weekend of January 20-21 will be for the Hafeez family, the refugee family that St. Leander has sponsored since March 2017.
The family is gradually adapting to being in the United States. They have recently moved into an
affordable housing apartment. The father, Hafeez, works at two jobs as a security guard. The two boys, Hamid and Wahid, are enrolled in McKinley School. The mother, Fatima, takes care of the household and continues to work at learning English. They still rely on some financial assistance from the parish.
Thank you for your generosity!
