RONALD McDONALD HOUSE

You can make a difference by saving aluminum pull tabs! Please consider saving your pull tabs and drop them into the container in the hallway near the parish center doors. The pull tabs that are donated are taken to a local recycler where they are weighed to determine their value. A check is then sent to the Ronald McDonald House in Buffalo who will provide lodging and food for over 600 families that stay annually while their child is being hospitalized or receiving treatment in the area.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western New York Pull Tab Program is a perfect way for our church family to provide help to families at a very critical time in their lives. God bless your heart for any assistance you can provide…and all you have to do is save your pull tabs! Won’t you help?

PRAISE HIS NAME!

Just a gentle reminder that God would like to see His children in His house of worship every weekend of the year. God knows that many families are busy on the weekends during the summer months doing things of great importance to them. God gave us free will, so God does not force use to do anything. When we are troubled and turn to God for help or guidance, our Maker makes time for us, yet so often we can’t seem to take an hour out of our busy week to give thanks to Him who always makes time for us! Please try to attend Mass often during the summer and praise His name!

Any one that can loan tools for the event such as: shovels, crowbars, metal rakes and small garden tools would be greatly appreciated.
