VISITING FRIENDS PROGAM
Do you have a relative, neighbor or friend who is homebound and might appreciate a visitor from time to time? He/she need not be a parishioner or necessarily share our Catholic faith, only live in the neighborhood of our parish. An assigned volunteer will visit your referral once a week for an hour or so to provide companionship and the comfort of social interaction. We are happy to visit people in nearby nursing homes, should they be in need of some company, as well as those in private homes. If you know of someone who might benefit from our program, please email us at
(put “Visiting Friends” in the subject box) or leave the information at the Rectory. Our wonderful group of volunteers happily serve in this fine ministry.
COLLECTION OF CRS RICE BOWLS:
Rice Bowls can be dropped off at the rectory. 75% of your donation will go to Catholic Relief Services’ programs serving the poorest of the poor overseas, 25% will go toward NY archdiocesan projects that minister to the poor and vulnerable in our own community.
If you made an on-line donation, please let us know so we can include it in our parish totals. Also, let us know how Rice Bowl enhanced your Lenten journey. Write down your thoughts and include it in your Rice Bowl.
Thank you! May God Bless you for your Lenten sacrifices to help those in need.
