Our parish will once again be hosting guests who are situationally homeless when the INTERFAITH SHELTER is held at our parish from February 23-March 9, 2019. Guests will spend each night in the parish hall and we will provide dinner, sack lunches, a warm place for sleeping, a shower, and breakfast each morning.
You have a unique opportunity to contribute to the Shelter by participating in our SHELTER GIVING RACK. When you come to Church next weekend, January 12 & 13, please stop by the GIVING RACK and select one or more cards with items that are needed for the Shelter. Purchase the items and drop them off at Church when you come to Mass on SHELTER SUNDAY, January 26 & 27.
On SHELTER SUNDAY, you can meet the Shelter Organizing Team and you will also have the opportunity to volunteer to bring a meal, serve breakfast, spend a night, transport guests to the laundry, set up or break down Shelter, or make a cash donation. We need new items each year because we often give bedding and towels to our guests if they are going to be placed in housing as they leave our shelter. What a practical way to participate in the Corporal Works of Mercy!
