We have lots to be thankful for~ even during this COVID pandemic. As Fr. Solanus said “Thank God ahead of time!”
Believe it or not, it's that time of year again to start thinking about "Adopt a Family" through the St. Vincent de Paul Society for Christmas! Like last year, the St. Jude Parish Conference will be adopting 10 families but because of COVID it will be a little bit different. We will need shoppers, present wrappers and delivery teams. You can take one family and do it all or you can just volunteer for one part of the process. We, of course, will need monetary donations and it is not too early to start donating. Just write "SVdP Christmas" on an envelope with your donation and drop it in the collection basket.
John and Mary Krisch are heading up the program this year and can be reached at 291-3463 if you have any questions. Keep an eye on the bulletin for additional information.
Help us, dear God, to see Your face in every veteran we encounter. Guide us as we imagine new ways to support veterans and their families. Bring healing and peace to all who have been wounded physically, mentally and spiritually during wartime.
Help us bring Your saving grace to heal the invisible wounds of war. We ask this in Jesus’ Holy Name. Amen.
