SUMTER–The Sumter Cursillo Group sponsored a Catholic book give away recently to support local parishes and help encourage parishioner growth.
Free books, pamphlets, media and flyers were available after Mass during the first three Sundays of Lent. Ray Blanchette, the project director, said the events were made possible by monetary and book donations of some generous people.
Over 200 books, hundreds of pamphlets as well as 500 flyers were available to those who wanted to expand the knowledge of their faith. The “Year of Faith” slogan adopted for the project was “Study your faith … share the faith.”
Father Tom Burke said the project was well received by parishioners and suggested that a short motivational talk be given at every Mass.
