MZA fundraiser picnic sponsored by Catholic Mission Aid

Slovenian missionaries are scattered around the world spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. Mostly living in Third-World conditions, they build, educate, feed, nurse, and otherwise help our sisters and brothers in Christ. Their burden becomes lighter and their yoke becomes easier when they receive financial assistance from us, the Slovenian-American community of Cleveland.
