October 30-31st Second Collection
Layette Ministry

Our Layette Ministry sew, knit, or crochet blankets and clothes for infants. These items are given to the Public Health nurse for single mothers, low income families and in some cases victims of domestic violence that have no other means of clothing or coverings for their newborns. It lets them know someone cares about them and their babies. Your support is much appreciated! You can donate here.

Many parishes have communal celebrations at which many persons receive the sacrament and we are one of them. Read more...
