 McDonald Family Matthew 25:31-46 Endowment 

 Parishes of Rock County 

This fund was made possible through the generosity of Kathryn and Patrick McDonald, who established the endowment in celebration of their birthdays and 40th wedding anniversary, in order to “serve the least of our brothers.”

The McDonald Family Matthew 25: 31-46 Endowment Fund provides assistance for corporal works of mercy, as particularly referenced in the Gospel of Matthew 25: 31-46, within Rock County. Assistance will be made available through grants to Rock County Catholic parishes, who in turn will directly fulfill corporal works of mercy through their ministries, programs, and outreach. Funding requests and grant applications are reviewed by the CDMF’s Grant Review Committee.

“Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
