Members from the Men’s and Women’s Prayer Groups, in the spirit of our parish’s recent ministry retreat, are collaborating to benefit the Foundations of Life Pregnancy Centers, a special service offered by Catholic Charities. The centers provide support services to women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. The centers offer free, confidential and nonjudgmental assistance to women of all ages, stressing to their clients that they don’t have to face their unplanned pregnancy alone. The centers also assist with the essentials needed for early childcare.

Items of greatest need include: diapers (sizes 4-6 preferred), formula, Wipes, baby lotion, baby wash & shampoo, diaper rash creams, sprays, or ointments, baby blankets, bottles, pacifiers, baby clothes (onesies or sizes 9M-18M, up to 2T), baby caps & booties, used strollers, baby carriers, baby food.

Each Saturday, our Hands of Hope ministry gathers together to prepare a meal for our homeless neighbors and then distributes it downtown while offering friendship and fellowship to the people we serve.

Items of greatest need include: toilet paper, shampoo, refillable plastic bottles (4-6 oz), conditioner, bar soap, deodorant, razors, foot powder, tooth brushes, tooth paste, feminine pads (large), adult diapers, bug spray, individually wrapped granola bars, chips, and water bottles, blankets, back packs, tote bags (thick materials preferred), plastic grocery bags, non-specific gift cards (Visa, etc.)

As always, your generosity is greatly appreciated.
