hungersitebullet "The Hunger Site was founded to focus the power of the Internet on a specific humanitarian need: the eradication of world hunger. Since its launch in June 1999, the site has established itself as a leader in online activism, helping to feed the world's hungry. On average, over 220,000 individuals from around the world visit the site each day to click the yellow "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button. To date, more than 300 million visitors have given more than 500 million cups of staple food.

The staple food funded by clicks at The Hunger Site is paid for by site sponsors and distributed to those in need by Mercy Corps and America's Second Harvest. 100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners.Funds are split between these organizations and go to the aid of hungry people in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America."

This is a simple way to get our students to think about the hungry people of the world for a few minutes a day.

bulletView a short documentary video relating the story of the conversion of Deacon Jones, who had been a Pentecostal minister. This video was produced in 2001, shortly after he and part of his congregation decided to join the Catholic Church. I found the documentary both fascinating and inspiring. This video and an article written by Deacon Jones about his conversion story could be useful in the context of the RCIA.

bullet Healing Resources - Fr Pat Umberge of the Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin maintains a Web site that contains a large array of resources. One section offers resources on healing. For a listing of some of the resources on this site that could be helpful in a catechetical context with either children or adults, click here.
