Over $300 worth of empties in 2018! Thank you for making this parish project a success. Thank you Wayne for your initiative and dedication to our parish family! The amount was split between a parishioner in need and the St. Vincent de Paul Society, for gifts for children.
Gloria Capaz, social worker at the Father Dowd home, called to say thank you for the more than 134 gifts we collected for their residence. Thank you for making the Advent Angel tree a success every year!
To our catechists, Miss Andrea, Miss Linda, Mr. Marco, Mr. Issa and Father Robert who give of their time, treasure and talent to ensure that the youngest members of our parish family grow in love of Jesus year after year: thank you! Your enthusiasm for and love of Christ are apparent in your students! Please keep our catechists in your prayers over the Christmas season.
Our last thank you – for now! – goes to everyone who helped get our Advent letters out just in time for Christmas! If you have not yet received Father Robert’s Advent letter, copies are available on the communion rail and at the main entrance of the church. The Christmas schedule can be found on the back of the letter.
