We try to make it a habit to think of others just the way Jesus told us to! Throughout the year we participate in various collections and projects. We make prayer chains and placemats to support SMMA’s wprk in prison ministries. At Thanksgiving we participate in St Patrick Center’s “Key Players” program to fight homelessness and take up a food collection to support the SVDP Carondelet Food Pantry. Last year we collected and donated to the “Welcome Back Pack” program for released prisoners and for two yeas before that we sent hundreds of stuffed animals along with medical missionaries to comfort Central American children facing medical issues. During the Year of Mercy we used our Mercy Wheel to help us focus on the various Works of Mercy one at a time. During Lent we utilize Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl Program to help us raise our awareness in a global way and direct our Lenten sacrifices to helping people in far away places. — There’s always something going on!
