Our Generations of Faith: A Night of Service will be Tuesday and Wednesday, May 7 & 8. We will be doing similar service stations to those in the past by building bags for St. Vincent de Paul clients, personal care/household cleaning bags that will go to St. Leo the Great in Camp Washington, baby shower bags for Pregnancy Center East’s new moms, Hispanic food bags for Reach Out Lakota and no-sew blankets for the baby shower bags! A pizza and salad dinner will also be provided. Want to volunteer to run one of the service stations? E-mail Joan at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can donate items to help us with this service event, we would be so appreciative. Please drop off these supplies before the week of May 7 & 8 so that we can organize them before assembling on the night of Generations of Faith. Thank you!

Place items in the basket with the sign “Reach Out Lakota Supplies.” These donations are given to Reach Out Lakota. Thank you for your support of this community organization.
Companions on the Journey
After the loss of a loved one, it’s normal to feel the effects of grief. The Companions on a Journey grief support group meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Hospitality Room. Here you can express your grief and learn how to go through the grief process so that you can begin this new chapter of your life in a healthy way. Please contact Ron Meyer 376-1277 or Karen Marvich 265-9375 if you have any questions.
Catholics Returning Home
Do you know someone who has drifted away from his/her Catholic faith? We may want to reach out to those disconnected from the church, but we aren’t sure how to offer support. As baptized, practicing Catholics, we have a precious gift of faith and love from the Lord that can be shared with our friends and loved ones. You can make a dramatic difference in someone’s life by simply reaching out to him/her and saying, “we miss you”. For more information contact Deacon Jerry Barney at 777-6433, ext. 121 or email@example.com.
