Could you help another family have a Merry Christmas? There are still MANY families who will not have gifts and food this year without your help Just give me a call or email me, and I’ll provide you with the names, ages, sizes and a need/wish list. We ask that you purchase an article of clothing for each person, a toy for each child and groceries or a gift card for Christmas dinner. Anything beyond that (additional toys, clothing, food, etc.) would be up to you.
The items should be gift-wrapped and can be delivered to the family’s parish (by Dec. 20th) OR right to their home.
Experience the true meaning of Christmas by adopting a family for the holidays! Contactat (586) 557-3745 or for more information.
Please consider baking for our Homebound parishioners so we may bring them goodness from St. Anastasia to their home. We will be collecting cookies, breads, muffins – individually wrapped as to stay fresh for number days til delivery.
Please deliver to the Narthex after any mass on December 14 & 15.
Thank you so much for your kindness
Peace to you
Dear Father J.J. and St. Anastasia Family,
It is with hearts filled with gratitude and love that we thank you for your 33 years of loving commitment to our families here in Lee County, Kentucky who are born into poverty. We received the loads of clothing, household items, infants and children toys and so many other items that our families need and are deeply grateful for.
I’d like to especially thank John and Barb Vella for their many years of generous and loving commitment to the clothing drive for our families.
Your blessings for us began arriving the evening of November 2nd with John & Barb bringing the U-Haul load followed by George & Mary Ann Schuster, Fred & Betty Navarre, Carolyn Hernandez, Jean and Carol & Ernie Reschke. I wish you could have seen the faces of those helping us unload and those who come to our “Closet” to shop, as the word spread that your labor of love for us had arrived!! It’s like Christmas for our families and the light in their eyes and smiles on their faces says it all!! They expressed over and over their gratitude to ALL of you for providing these items for their children, elderly and families. From our hearts we thank you. YOU literally make it possible for us to provide our “Closet” ministry for our people as you are the sole support of it.
During this special season of giving thanks, we thank our loving God for each of you and pray that you are filled with God’s deep peace, abundance and love of family and friends. Always you are in our hearts and prayers especially as we begin the holy season of Advent and Christmas. Hug each other for us!!
Love and prayers,
Sister Mary Kay Drouin, O.P. and Charlene Dunaway
