Lawn Fete Grocery Booth

The Lawn Fete Grocery Booth is comig back and they need your help! This weekend, we will be collecting cleaning products and paper prodicts. There will be a tote to put any donated items in at the main entry of the church. If you would like to mark it for the grocery booth as well so that it isn't confused for a blessing box donation (although those are welcome and greatly appreciated as well!), it would be welcomed. Our parish and community is so generous and we are so blessed to be surrounded by great people. Thank you for all of your support!

Publications

 "Let us ask God to help us set out on a path of true conversion. Let us leave behind our selfishness and self-absorption, and turn to Jesus’ Pasch. Let us stand beside our brothers and sisters in need, sharing our spiritual and material goods with them. In this way, by concretely welcoming Christ’s victory over sin and death into our lives, we will also radiate its transforming power to all of creation."                                                                 Pope Francis, October 4, 2018
