Over the past nine years or so, there have been
Christians around the world, Catholic and non-Catholic
Christians who have written for either financial
help and assistance and / or religious materials
in countries where the Catholic faith is still growing.
Some times I've received postal mails addressed to
my home address requesting such materials.
the issue over with some of my trusted Catholic apologists on how best to handle
this issue. Web/e-mail communications is virtuously anonymous. We don't know
who we are really communicating with. We don't know whether,
whoever is writing us, is, really, who they say they are.
As an initial solution to solving this issue, we would request that if you
are a Christian Minister, Catholic priest or Christian religious man or woman
of faith who needs either financial assistance or religious materials for your
Catholic community to send us the postal address of the Catholic diocese
you are from along with a priest-contact and e-mail address, if available.
If you don't know the address, David Cheney has creates a great web site for
getting such information at: http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org.
If you send me an e-mail
with the name, postal address and e-mail, if possible,
of the priest overseeing Catholic charities for
that diocese, I will post all names and postal
addresses along with the requested needs for that
community on a designated
page on the AskACatholic.com web
site. If there is no priest overseeing Catholic charities
for that diocese, the name of any priest working in
that diocese will be sufficient.
If you have any recommendations or ideas for improving
this procedure, please
e-mail them to me.
