Plan on attending the Knights of Columbus breakfast on Sunday Oct 22nd between the 9:00 and 11:00 Masses. Fr. Maxis, from Haiti, will be present at this breakfast and the funds raised from it will go directly to our sister parish, St. Jacques. St. Jacques has benefitted from your generosity over the past three years with funds being directed to the school (they do not have any public ‘free’ schools in this area), a new church, water filters, food, medical teams, clothing and the like. They will need our help again this year to keep up the good works that are being done there in the name of Christ. Please come and enjoy some time with Fr. Maxis.
There will also be a second collection this same weekend at all of the Masses. Please plan for this and donate generously to this worthy cause.
The hardworking people of St. Jacques need our support to ensure a healthier place to live, a more educated future, and a chance to better the lives for their children and for generations to come.
Join us to watch Fr. Stephen represent Our Lady!
