Compassion Kits: Our October Social Outreach Project

posted in: Parish News

Compassion Kits Flyer 2021

We will collect these items throughout the month of October. Baskets will be placed at the front of Church for your donations. We will also accept cash donations so that we may purchase items to complete these kits. During the 2nd week of November, (Donut Sunday) these kits will be assembled. Once assembled, you, the parishioner are willing to take the kits and pass them out to the unsheltered that you meet in and round the neighborhood. Thank you for your generous response to help the unsheltered in our community. Please keep all men, women and children who have no place to call home in your prayers. Questions, please call the Parish Office at 612-529-7779.
