Meeting Rm B

The Stephen Ministers at St. Anastasia are inviting all those in service ministries to attend a presentation by James Boniface, M.A., LPC, NCC.  Jim is a fully Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan. He works with a broad range of health practitioners providing healthcare for citizens in need through a large Southeast Michigan community mental health organization. If you have an interest in learning more about resources that are available to the many people we interact with, and would like useful, natural, and practical suggestions for helping others improve the quality of their life, please RSVP to Julie. A light breakfast will be provided.

Project Linus Blanket Party

We will be hosting the next Project Linus Blanket making party on Saturday, February 3rd from 9 am to 2pm in the Davidson Center.

We are in need of as many pieces of 2 1/2 yards of pre-washed flannel that you can provide. We also need satin blanket binding in red, black, brown, orange, turquoise, hot pink and any prints. We are always in need of baby soft yarn. If the thought of going to a fabric store is overwhelming we will be happy to accept donations and do the shopping for you. Because we shop the sales we are able to make a flannel blanket with a satin binding on one edge for less than $5.00. Project Linus is a 501 c3 so your donations are tax deductible.

If you are planning to come and work at the blanket party please call or e-mail your reservation to Allyson Wyckhuyse, 248-828-7511.
