Thank your for stopping by the gathering space after Masses on June 17/18. We enjoyed sharing photos from last year’s service day and our current onsite projects with you.
We are in need of back to school supplies for an on-site parish center project. We will be making and filling 100 pencil pouches for the organization Operation Christmas Child. Would you consider purchasing a few extra school supplies as you shop and donate them to us for this project? Back to school supplies often are on sale in July.
The supplies needed for the pencil pouches are: colorful duck tape, gallon size zip lock bags, pencils, pens, small pencil sharpeners, pencil top erasers, children’s scissors and glue sticks. Hold onto these items and we will let you know when and where to drop them off.
Thank you for your support!
