Opportunities for Giving

√    Fill a Bag for Mom. This year once again we invite you to celebrate Mother’s Day by donating a bag of groceries for the needy in honor of, or in memory of, your mother.  These groceries will be used to stock our Food Pantry shelves throughout the summer.  Bring the groceries to church on Mother’s Day, May 13th.  They will become a special part of our offering during all four Masses.

In the week following Mother’s Day, a letter will be sent to each mother in whose honor groceries were given  – telling her of the sustaining gift you have given in her name.  Also during this week we will give thanksgiving for, and remember in our prayers, those mothers in whose memory these gifts were given. Extra Bags are available on the Usher’s Table in the back of church along with grocery lists and detailed instructions.
boiled egg

√    Casa Maria volunteers will meet this Friday, May 4th  at 5:30 PM, in the Parish Center to prepare sack lunches. Your help is needed - the volunteers can always use a few extra hands and two dozen shelled hard-boiled eggs.  Join us for fellowship and to help with this good work.
