Do you have an elderly family who is a parishioner, and unable to get out to Mass, and you would like bring the Holy Eucharist to them? I can help train you so you may deliver to them as a disciple of Christ. Do you know of a parishioner who is unable to attend Mass and has no family around to support them? If so please contact me and I may be of service to them. Kim Houseman, khou...@stanastasia.org

Peace and goodness to you

Clothing Drive

March 28   8 AM – 11 AM in the Davidson Center

Greetings from SNOWY Beattyville, Kentucky!   This has been an extremely snowy and cold winter here and so many of our families have suffered the effects from it. Thanks to you and your loving commitment to our Appalachian families they had warm clothing, blankets and some assistance with food, heating fuel and wood. With hearts filled with gratitude and love we thank you for your faithful and loving commitment for the past 40 years to our hurting people. In the midst of this winter weather it’s hard to believe that the time has arrived for the Clothing Collection for our families here who are born into poverty. The clothing you bring for our infants, children and adults as well as the household items you collect truly raises the dignity and self-worth of our families. YOU not only bring warmth for their material needs but even more than that you give the warmth of your friendship, compassion and loving care. God bless y’all for being you and for loving us!!

If you are able to drive to Kentucky or want to help in other ways please contact John Vella at 248-879-9589.

Love and prayers, Sister Mary Kay Drouin,O.P.
