End of Summer News

Dear Church Family and Friends,

It was priceless from what I hear. A little girl going into the second grade whose mom is incarcerated had her face light up last Sunday at St. Patrick's after church. It was as though she was opening gifts on Christmas morning. "Cool! Awesome!" and big smiles as she got a pink backpack full of everything she needs for school. Then, it was grandmother's turn as she received a $25.00 gift card.

This is the fruit of our "Back to School Backpack" outreach this year. Real people from our community are being blessed because you cared enough to give. Thank you!

Fr. Kevin
