Dear Parishioners: “What is the difference between being warm or freezing this winter?”
Ans: You & I! Let us all select our gently used sweaters and coats and donate to those who are in need this winter. Labeled boxes will be placed in the vestibule from Saturday October 31st thru Sunday November 15th. Let everybody, bless somebody
Remember: Matt 25:38-40 The righteous asked Jesus “When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you….” Jesus (The King) reply: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me”
