We are happy to share that due to everyone’s generous donations we now have our own school that we are supporting. Here is a copy of the letter from the Mary’s Meals organization with information on the school we are feeding. Thank you to everyone who has donated and we hope you will continue to support this important ministry in our parish so we can continue to help this important program for years to come. To make a donation, simply place your donation (clearly marked for Mary’s Meals) in the collection basket and we will make sure your generosity is passed on to the children. Thank you!!
