Opportunities for Service and Giving

Casa Maria is this Friday October 26 at 6:00 PM in the Parish Center. The incredible – edible egg! Won’t you be a good egg and donate a dozen hard-boiled, peeled eggs? Your contribution of a dozen eggs will make one to two dozen sandwiches for people who are hungry and in need of food. Your hands are needed to help make sandwiches beginning at 6:00 pm.

It is time again for St. Michael’s Angel Food. Remember an angel you love this coming Christmas holiday with the best coconut macadamia toffee you have ever tasted. Be an angel and help with the production of this delicious angel food! Sign-up sheets are located in the back of church!

It’s time for Fr. Smith’s “shoe box” charity project. If you have any empty shoeboxes, please bring them and leave them in the back of church or simply drop them by the parish office. Extra large shoeboxes cannot be used. These boxes will be wrapped and filled with items then taken to Nogales on the Feast of the Epiphany (or Three King’s Day) and distributed to the children there. More information is located on the Usher’s table in the back of church.

Sale of memorial bricks for the St. Michael’s Church and Day School Foundation Courtyard is underway. The Courtyard will be a beautiful space for the parish and school to hold a variety of events. Your contribution will help make this dream a reality. Contact the church office for a brochure containing all the details about purchasing a memorial brick.

DID YOU KNOW that St. Michael’s receives 3% of all purchases made with a Fry’s Gift Card? For more information or to purchase a gift card(s) for yourself or as a gift for someone else, please see or phone Betty Malody.
