LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Bibles are on their way, thanks to you! Just two weeks ago, the Sisters of St. Joseph ordered 350 Bibles for their students at the religious school in Grenville on the tiny island of Grenada in the Caribbean. However, when we noted the shipping charges we were shocked.

How could we fulfill this massive order of Bibles for the sisters and ask them for another $800 to cover shipping? We couldn't do that to the sisters who are doing God's work in the field every day.

Check out the YCVF now!

So YCVF turned to you, our Catholic Champions to help and you delivered. Thank you! Your donation has helped to provide 350 students with Bibles they can study and use to learn about God and the life of Christ and how to be better citizens in a world filled with temptations and challenges. You have made a difference.

Your Catholic Voice Foundation shipped 350 Bibles to a Catholic school in Grenada last week with international shipping costs covered by you.


This isn't the first time either. Last month, YCVF gathered enough in donations to equip a Catholic school in Bakersfield, CA with XO Tablets, a quality learning tool that helps students engage with their lessons in new ways, teaches them how to use technology, and prepares them for the future with lessons that aid in moral education. Those tablets went to Our Lady of Guadalupe School in Bakersfield and have been used in the school's summer program. They will also be used in August when students return from their vacation.

The Sisters Servants of the Blessed Sacrament who run Our Lady of Guadalupe School are meeting this week in Mexico and one of the topics will be equipping the students in Guatemala with these tablets.

The XO Tablet is specially designed for use in the developing world. It's durable and can be customized with apps. The tablet has features which allow teachers and parents to monitor usage, progress on assignments and so on. Perhaps best of all, the tablet can carry a virtual library's worth of books in a portable, durable easy-to-use design.

These tablets can dramatically reduce barriers to education by reducing costs -it's normally cheaper to replace a tablet which can carry a library than to replace a single textbook, given the costs of textbooks. It also familiarizes kids with technology, a skill they increasingly need as technology becomes ubiquitous.

Your Catholic Voice Foundation is looking to provide more of these tablets to schools that need them as they carry on their mission to change the world through a sustained campaign of 'Prayer and Action.'  This is what Pope Francis has called all Catholics to do. Let us answer his call with a prayerful heat and make a change in the world, starting now.

Help the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament equip their students with more of these powerful learning tools. Support Catholic education and moral development. Help kids break out of cycles of poverty.
