Updates to Parish Records – members and contact information: We are using this time to connect with our Parish family and ensure that we have correct information to connect with you. Phone numbers and email addresses are especially challenging to keep current.
CAN YOU PLEASE HELP US by letting us know your number if you have gotten rid of your land line. In addition, please check in with your neighbors, adult children, friends, etc. Some of them may want to be included as well! If you have heard from us by phone or email in recent weeks, we should have your information correct, so there is no need to follow up. If you have NOT heard from us, we probably do not have your number or email.
Thank you for your prayers and contributions in support of the Rise Against Hunger Meal Pack event, co-hosted by St. Gabriel and St. Margaret Mary parishes. Contributions and support from the two parishes will enable us to assemble and package at least 35,000 meals! However, concern for safety and welfare of parishioners amid the COVID-19-Coronavirus outbreak has led to a temporary postponement of the Meal Pack event. Please note that this is a postponement and not a cancellation of the event. Details of a future date and time for this exciting parish service project will be announced to all parishioners via the bulletin at a later date. Lenten blessings!
We have 3 committees that send out home-made cards. Approximately 75 cards are mailed each month. Currently there are 4 volunteers making cards and we could use some help. The Homebound Committee is sending 40+ cards per month and likes to use any uplifting card. They use monthly themes, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving etc. The Bereavement Committee sends anywhere from 6 to 15 cards per month and likes Thinking of You cards with the fronts decorated, and the inside blank. We send birthday cards to parishioners once they reach their 80th birthday which total 20+ each month. You can make the cards at home at your leisure and drop them off at the Parish office. If you aren't a crafter but would still like to help, we can always use envelopes, stamps, or cardstock, decorative paper, etc. Please do not drop off cards sent to you as a gift from a donation to a charitable organization. Thank you
