Thank you to the generous hearts that made a Shoebox of Joy. Our school sent 97 boxes of joy to the homebound through Catholic Community Services.
2022 Appeal for the Poor. Did you know that after the state government, Catholic Community Services is the largest social service network in the state that supports food programs, temporary and permanent housing, counseling services, as well as programs for the sick, elderly, and homebound? CCS is accepting donations to support their work at https://ccsww.org/2022-appeal-for-the-poor/

Join us for a Reconciliation Service this Friday, December 9th at 7pm at St. George. This is a wonderful opportunity during Advent to prepare our hearts for the coming of the Lord. At these liturgies, we will listen to Scripture and to God’s call to continuing conversion and repentance, and to God’s steadfast offer of mercy and forgiveness. We will have several priests available for individual confession as well.
