From Burma to Yakima – A Connection Through Christ

Little did Don and Sylvia Brule imagine how $12 per month could change lives when they met Father John Gawdy nearly 20 years ago. Father Gawdy, a native of Burma, befriended the Brules during his stay in the United States. He shared with them the needs of the boys living at the St. Dominic Boarding Home in his homeland. As the stories unfolded, the Brules knew they could help these boys. They created the “Father Gawdy Boys” program at Holy Family Parish. Through the Brule’s fundraising efforts, more than 250 sponsors are supporting 160 boys. The funds provide medical care, housing, food, clothing and schooling, dramatically changing life for these boys. But the greatest blessings of all are the vocations coming from St. Dominic’s. To date, four priests have been ordained and six seminarians are in formation. Thanks to the Brules love, the Church is growing in Asia.
