The 40 Days of Generosity is coming soon!
ChristNet needs our help!
Combine these causes to help fight hunger!

Lent begins on February 17. This year 40 Days of Generosity becomes
40 Days of Giving and focuses on eliminating world hunger.
In a wonderful coincidence, ChristNet is asking each of the Grosse Ile churches
to sponsor a week in March for the hungry and homeless in our area.

At this time, ChristNet is planning that the week will be similar to what and how we sponsored in November. Donations to ChristNet allowed restaurant meals to be prepared,
packaged and delivered to a central location and rooms were provided at a hotel.
As before, donations are greatly appreciated.
If you wish to donate, make sure to designate "ChristNet"
on your contribution.
FOOD PANTRY
at Sacred Heart
Sandi Loso continues to take collected foods from our Narthex to Sacred Heart each month. Please add 1 more item into your grocery cart each week to help those facing hunger in our community!
