Please continue to save Box Tops for Education. They are sent to Saint Michael’s Indian School in Arizona. The School was founded by our Patroness, Saint Katharine Drexel, in 1902 to provide a quality education rooted in Catholic values as a key to spiritual growth, empowerment, self-determination, and a better quality of life for Native Americans.

Baby Bottle Blessing – To support the life-affirming work of Morning Star Pregnancy Services, our parish will participate in a “Baby Bottle Blessing,” beginning on May 21, and wrapping up on June 11.  Look for our Baby Bottle display.  We invite each family to take a baby bottle home and fill it with loose change/bills and/or check (made payable to Morning Star). Remember to pray for moms and babies during this time.
