There's no Sunday like a Fifth Sunday, thanks to the generosity of the Compassion Committee. You outdid yourselves with your latest Fifth Sunday toiletry and food collection from October 31st.

THANK YOU for continuing to prioritize House of Ruth and our clients' needs. Just terrific!

And to boot, your members donated $400 in cash for us to purchase needed products. As always, yours was another amazing effort.

We are so grateful for your partnership. May all of you enjoy a peaceful, blessed Thanksgiving.

Until it's a world free of HIV,
Lisa Sutton,

Service of the Longest Night
Set for December 18
Abbey Caskets, a work of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, will host a Service of the Longest Night on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 6 pm Central Time in the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Guest House Chapel in St. Meinrad, IN. Many people find the holidays a challenging time. Instead of celebrating, they are struggling with grief. They miss loved ones and find that the usual traditions and bright lights serve only to heighten their struggle.

Fr. Adrian Burke, OSB, will lead the service with prayer and Scripture that acknowledge those who mourn and struggle with loss during the Christmas season. Everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will follow. RSVP requested, but not required, for planning. Reply to info@abbeycaskets.com or call 80 987-7380 for further information.
Parking is available in the Guest House parking lot. Guests to Saint Meinrad are asked to wear masks.
Want to put a smile on someone’s face? Have unused Christmas Cards?
