Opportunities for Giving

Casa Maria will meet at 6PM this Friday, July 31st in the nicely cool Parish Center. We make 500 lunches for distribution to the poor, homeless, and out of work people in our community. Bring a dozen, (or two) hard-boiled (and shelled) eggs for the egg salad sandwiches. Come share in this effort and you’ll go home alive in the Spirit! All are welcome; bring your friends! Be cool!

USED CELL PHONE COLLECTION & FUNDRAISER! This summer our church is participating in a cell phone fundraising drive. There is nothing for you to buy or sell to participate. We simply ask that you donate your extra inactive cell phones to our drive. This drive will benefit your family, your church, and the environment by keeping harmful materials the phone contain out of our landfill. The collection box is in the back of church. A Tax Deductible Receipt for you is located on the box.

FOOD PANTRY - We are in need of:
  • Canned fruit
  • Juices
  • Small boxes of cereal
  • Peanut butter
  • Evaporated milk
  • tuna

  • snacks
We are also in need of plastic bags in which to place the food. We thank you for your continued generosity.
