St. Francis House Vets

Over Christmas, many of you donated clothing and other items to the veterans at St. Francis House. Below are two links that go to St. Francis House's website. Here you can see the vets you helped and read the story written from a veteran's point of view.



Please note that you can always give to St. Francis House. Monetary donations can be given directly through their website  www.stfrancisministries.com/

Clothing, household goods, and other items can be put in the donation bin at the bottom of the parish hall near the stairwell. Pick up there is every Thursday morning. 

Thank you for your continued support of St. Francis House and St. Luke's!
