Backpack & School Supply Collection

Our annual collection of backpacks & school supplies for children experiencing poverty has begun. We will be collecting school supplies in the gathering space after Masses until August 5th. When you are purchasing school supplies for your children, please consider picking up a few extra items for our collection. Mothers & Children in Crisis is an organization that helps children whose mothers are seeking to overcome addiction & are learning to raise their children in a safe & supportive environment.
