Catholic Campus Ministry Hosts Dinner Benefit for Mission in the Congo

MELBOURNE, FLA. — The Florida Institute of Technology Catholic Campus Ministry will hold the dinner benefit, “Caring in the Congo,” on Saturday, March 29,
from 6 to 9 p.m. in the university’s Denius Student Center’s Hartley Room.

All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Sisters of the Divine Savior, the Salvatorians, for their mission work in the Congo, Africa. The event
will feature speaker Sister Marion Etzel, president of the Sisters of the Divine Savior. There will also be a silent auction, raffle, and 50/50 drawing.

The benefit was initiated by Melbourne Central Catholic High School student Maureen Furino for a senior community awareness project.
Rev. Douglas Bailey, Florida Tech Catholic Campus Ministry chaplain said, “The Congo is one of the most dangerous places for Catholics in the world today.
Yet this is exactly where the sisters have chosen to serve. Following gospel teachings, they are not just serving Catholics. They are building a school for
use by anyone in the Congo. We cannot go there ourselves, but we can help them through this project.”

The organization is currently soliciting donations for auction items. If you would like to contribute or attend, please contact Maureen Furino, committee
chair, at (321) 427-3357 or Bailey at (321) 674-8045. Tickets are $25 per person, $20 per student.
