Isn't this awesome?!

This was an incredible donation received from St Benedict Church. This donation will allow us to give 177 children a toy and 75 children a new outfit for Christmas during our Christmas Store shopping weeks this year.

We are still in need of donations...we have 900 appointments scheduled and that translates to over 2000 toys and outfits to be given away to those in need of Christmas help in our community. Our faith is strong; God works through you and me to see this happen each year. Because of all of your generous donations we are able to help give families an outfit for each member of the family, a toy for each child, a family hygiene gift bag, socks and underwear, a household gift and many added free items to fill stockings and spirits. If you would like to be a part of this year's season of giving, we are in need of more toys and clothing for children and volunteers to help them choose items through the first 3 weeks of December!

A Prayer for My Parish

Grace, Gratitude, Generosity

 

Gracious and loving God,  in this year of grace, we ask you to send your Holy Spirit upon our parish to fill us with love.

Make us instruments of your love to everyone that we encounter at home, at work, in our neighborhoods, and in our parish community.

Work through us so that we can bring your love to those who are searching for you.

Help us to grow in gratitude so that we can recognize and thank you for all the good things you have given us.

Instill in us a deep sense of generosity so that we are willing to share our gifts, our talents, our time, and our financial resources.

Deepen our desire to follow your will and to do all things for your honor and glory. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.

Amen
