Helping Our People Everywhere
Each month we collect donations through a special green envelope in your packet. In December we vote through ballots to decide as a congregation what organizations will benefit from the generosity of our parishioners. We benefit one local organization, one national organization and one international organization.
Money from this collection is also used to support "at the door" ministry when needed, as well as emergency needs for parishioners at the Pastor's discretion.
One of the most important aspects of the HOPE program is the mission to empower our Parish members to see that they an make a difference with their donations to this fund. We thank you for your very generous donations.
Yearly in December
Every December we collect hats, gloves/mittens, scarves, and blankets to donate to St. Luke's Mission of Mercy. A tree is placed near the entrance to the Church and it is filled with generous donations from our parishioners to keep others warm during the cold winter months. During one of the weekends the Altar/Rosary Society sells gloves/mittens and these make wonderful donations to the warming tree. Thank you for being so generous to this collection.
Yearly before Super Bowl Sunday
For 3 weeks before the Super Bowl we collect cans of soup and other non-perishable items to donate to St. Luke's Mission of Mercy Food Pantry. Cash donations are also accepted during this collection to benefit the homeless and hungry in the community. Thank you for your very generous donations to this ministry.
