The first SNS service project of the year will be the annual Peanut Butter & Jelly collection. Every family is asked to donate at least one jar of peanut butter and one jar of jelly during the month of September. The jars will be collected at school and then distributed to the parish’s Wednesday food procurement program and St. Gabe’s Cupboard. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
