Epiphany Gifts for Primavera
We thank the kind and generous community of St Michaels for the donations they made to Primavera. The Gold trunk was full every week with clothing and toiletries. A young man approached me and said,"I want to thank you. I am one of the people you are helping."I was proud to say that those donations were from the parishoners at St Michaels Church. So thank you all once again for your donations to those who don't have enough for a chilly winter's night. -  Diane Tyron
