Mission Project and Worship
The classes will participate in a mission project making ‘blessing bags’ for those affected by the recent disasters in the US, Puerto Rico and Mexico. A large bin is outside of Lorri’s office to collect items for the bags. We need toothpaste, toothbrushes, small shampoos, washcloths, individually wrapped bars of soap, decks of cards, small activity books, crayons, wide tooth combs, $5 gift cards (McDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King, Dunkin Donuts, etc.), socks, chap stick, all-purpose wipes, non-perishable foods (granola bars, raisins, etc.). Dollar Store type items are perfect. Gallon sized re-closable plastic bags. We will assemble the bags on November 12 and then offer them at the LIGHT service in the parish hall that day. We hope you will all help us to help those who have experienced tragedy in their lives.
