Resurrection Youth

Collecting items for foster children

The 117th Diocesan Annual Council is going to be at the Cathedral on November 10-11. This year, our youth-led service project will impact a very vulnerable group of people: kids in foster care.

Children are removed from their families every day because of abuse or neglect. Too often, these children have to carry trash bags filled with their belongings to their new foster home. For a vulnerable child or teen in crisis, having a backpack that belongs to them and is full of some basic practical and comfort items can show them that they matter and are loved by God and others, even in the midst of chaos.

  • By replacing the trash bag with a backpack, we can help increase feelings of self-worth and remove the homeless stigma from the process.
  • By providing the comfort of a blanket or a cuddly teddy bear, we can help reduce stress and trauma and make children feel safe and cared for.
  • By providing the urgent essentials children need upon entering care, we allow the foster family to focus on mental well-being during a scary and uncertain time. Reducing stress and trauma upon entering foster care can allow the children to have a less stressful introduction to a family, allowing them to form bonds and reduce multiple placements.

Donations must be new and can be placed in the bin in the church entrance way.

Altar Flowers

The beautiful flowers which adorn the altar through the seasons of the Church a a beautiful reminder of God's grace. You can donate flowers on a Sunday in memory or thanksgiving for someone you love. Click the link below to save a date.
