This fall, all faith formation students and their families are invited to participate in a collection of food and paper products to replenish our parish pantry which is used to assist throughout the year, those in need. Participation is optional. We especially need basic food items such as baking mix (like Bisquick), peanut butter and jelly, tuna fish etc., as well as household items and toiletries: laundry detergent, dish soap, hand soap, paper products. Items may be placed in a collection box in the school lobby on Wednesdays, or brought to the Religious Education office from November 12th – December 10th.
Thank you for your generosity!
