5th Sunday Special Collection all month!  

Rather than a monetary collection for the July 5th Sunday Collection, we are requesting specific items be donated to benefit three local organizations.  We continue to accept the following items:
--New underwear, undershirts and socks sizes youth 6 to adult (to benefit local Foster Children)

--Baby diapers sizes 2 through 5 (Catholic Charities will distribute to their clients in need)

--Adult disposable pull up underwear (preferably large sizes)/Adult Diapers (Better Health will distribute to local persons in need)

Donations can be placed in the labeled boxes in the gathering space in the church, or dropped off to the parish office during business hours.  We will continue to collect requested items throughout the month of July.  If you decide to make a monetary donation, you can use the 5th Sunday envelope in you offertory envelope packet, or place a donation in a plain envelope marked 5th Sunday. Thank you for reaching out in a specific way to our local neighbors in need!
