Blessing of the Backpacks
Supporting the Broadview-Thomson K-8 Food Program
Friday, September 18th
Food Donation Drop-Off at the Parish & School
Although this year is looking a little different from past years, our support of the Broadview-Thomson K-8 Food Program is more important than ever. There are two easy ways to donate on Friday, September 18th: In conjunction with picking up t-shirts for the Jog-A-Thon, you can drop off non-perishable food at the school between 1:00-3:00 pm. If you are not picking up a t-shirt, you can leave donations in the box outside the door to the parish office from 8 am-Noon. Everyone is invited to celebrate the beginning of the new school year by providing for our neighbors in need!
Grab your backpack and tune in to the live streamed Mass on Saturday, September 19th at 5pm. Fr. Crispin will bless the donations at Mass and your backpacks virtually at home!
