Today, Monday, 21 November, is National Philanthropy Day. It is a day set aside to thank all those in the United States who have given of their time and resources to support those initiatives that reach out to make this world a better place.

At a luncheon today hosted by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in New York’s legendary Plaza Hotel, Alfred A. Lagan was honored for his generosity to the peoples and churches served by CNEWA.

A member of the agency’s Development Leadership Council, Mr. Lagan has not only provided assistance to child care endeavors of the church throughout our world — especially in Ethiopia — but he has offered professional assistance and guidance and invited others to join him in supporting this unique agency of the Holy See.

Thank you, Mr. Lagan, for your help and your example! May God continue to bless you and your family.
