Our collections this month will be delivered to St Agatha’s Center located in south St Louis near the brewery.
As we approach this month of Thanksgiving we give special thanks for all our blessings and for the bounty that God has bestowed on us in so many ways. Knowing too that many struggle with the basic needs to lead as full and healthy of lives. It is to these that we bring our gifts of food and moneys for fuel through the winter months. Please be generous at this special time of year to show our gratitude and to share with all those in need. Baskets will be placed at the front of church at the altar at all the Masses next weekend. Thank you.
Baskets will be in place on the altar at the Masses. Yellow bags are handed out each month to assist and remind folks to save up their donations and bring them to church on the first weekend of the month.
Suggestions of healthy food items and things most needed are written on the bags. However, it is okay to bring whatever you have available and to use any bags you have. All donations are welcome.
If you don’t have anything to spare or prefer monetary donations, they can be placed in the small baskets in front at the altar as well. Half of these moneys are distributed to the designated food pantry and half to our own St. Vincent DePaul Society helping folks in our immediate area. So, thank you for your donations in whatever form they come.
