Garden of Giving

Did you know we plant a small Garden here in our own courtyard to feed the hungry in the area.

Once we tend to our garden, and start harvesting we deliver to local shelters to feed those who need help.

I am seeking adults to help with tending, weeding and harvesting our vegetables May – September. You don’t have to be a pro, just love to help others and perhaps dig in the dirt.

We put together a flexible schedule, so after we plant you might help once a week.

I have one volunteer so far…

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Our next Prayer Shawl meetings will be held Wednesday April 1 (no kidding!) and May 6. The morning group meets from 10-12, and the evening group from 7-9 at Faith at Work. (We do not meet in the summer, but we still knit or crochet!) We have requests for prayer shawls for grieving or ill parishioners, scarves for the homeless. We also have a request for 12″ square ‘comfort baby blankets’ for child Cancer patients, needed by May 20. If you are able to help, please join us or drop off your creations. Call me (Pat) at 248-689-8189 with your questions.

AFFORDABLE FOOD ASSISTANCE

Deciding between food and medicine? No one should ever have to choose! The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a benefit for eligible individuals and families, including seniors. SNAP helps you save on groceries to free up money to pay bills, for medications, and other necessities. Thanks in part to generous support from the Walmart Foundation, Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan (CCSEM) can help residents of Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties to find out if they are eligible. Make a confidential call to CCSEM today! 248-338-4250 ext. 3700

Beaumont Communion Ministers

Every Sunday, directly from 8:15 AM Mass, six or seven ministers bring Holy Communion to all Catholics who desire the Sacrament (150-170 patients) at Troy Beaumont. Sunday mornings once every 5 or 6 weeks is the time commitment. You are very much needed; we are low on ministers at this time! Training is provided.
