In this month of October we will be providing help to a few organizations that help sustain life. First, we will be filling baby bottles with spare change beginning on 8 October for A Women’s Concern, a local pregnancy resource center that helps mothers in need bring their children to term and find the resources they need to flourish. On 15 October we will begin our annual food drive for Thanksgiving to support the work of our parish St. Vincent de Paul Society. Please drop off your food donations (Thanksgiving meal non-perishable items) at the parish center during the week or bring these with you to church at the weekend Masses. Grocery gift cards are also accepted as donations for distribution for our local poor, homeless, and unemployed. Thank You!
