It's a mad scheme by two priest for a fellow priest.
Padre Mickey is hoping to take a well-deserved sabbatical from his thriving Panamanian congregation. The hope is that we can raise some money so he and his lovely wife, Mona, can have a proper sabbatical.
You can read all the details over at MadPriest's Place.
Basically, here's the scheme:
"The Padre Mickey Restoration Appeal starts now and will end on the 3rd. April 2009.
Our first main aim is to raise $1000 so that Mickey and Mona can pay for somewhere to live while they are in the States.
Our second aim is to get them some spending money (for things like eating, going out, that sort of stuff).
Our third aim, if we achieve the first two, is to send some money to Mickey's church in Panama to help pay for some major restoration work that needs doing on their church hall."
You can contribute via PayPal by clicking on the "donate" button on the top of the column on your right.
If you prefer, you may send your checks (or cheques) or money orders, made out to The Episcopal Church of St. Paul and marked "City of God Appeal" to:
200 Main Street
Chatham, NJ (USA) 07928
Thanks for your generosity and kindness. Let's give Padre Mickey and his lovely wife Mona a time of re-creation and refreshment.
God knows, no one deserves it more.
Except, perhaps, for Madpriest, but then again, Mimi will be there soon enough to take care of things.
