Every year the Priory of St. Thomas á Becket makes generous donations to various Charities throughout the world. The Charities listed below are a sample of whom we donated to in 2015-2016. Our list of Charities continues to grow as turmoil in the world increases, providing assistance to needy Christians both in the Holy Land and locally in the USA.
