Parish Family in Need

Last night one of our parish families came back to their home to find it fully engulfed in flames. They have a place to stay, but will have immediate needs, as it seems they have only the clothes they were wearing Saturday...... if you are in a position to help in any way great or small, we have been in contact with them to identify some of the more immediate needs (clothes, shoes, etc and respective sizes)
If you are more comfortable, it is also possible to purchase gift cards, or even make a monetary donation, so that they can get various items. We will have this ready by the end of the 10:30am Mass today. This will be similar to the "Giving tree" with a paper heart on which is listed a suggested item. Items can be returned to the Parish Office, 9am-5pm, Monday- Friday (but the sooner the better), contact Fr David J. Veit at the parish office or email if you have any questions.
