Please remember, every woman of this parish is already a member, and welcome to attend meetings. There are no membership fees, just fellowship and helping our parish.
Dec. 2nd Meet and Greet at 6:30 pm – This will be after the Saturday mass. Wine and cheese will be paid for by the church ($250). 12 artists from the parish will be showcased. Each will have a table set up to show arts or sell them. Newcomers will be invited. Volunteers are needed to bring appetizers as well as to decorate on that Friday night using Christmas theme at 6:00 pm. Confirmation service kids will be asked to volunteer their time and watch children if they come with their parents. Church calendar person needs to be notified to put this event and the cookie walk in the calendar.
Jesse Tree – people might think if they give things to the Shoebox, then they think they don’t have to help for the Jesse Tree. People need to be informed that these are separate programs. Shoebox is to send help out of the country, and Jesse Tree is for local county donations. There are no applications for Jesse Tree as of yet. Outreach is taking church member applications and if there’s not a lot then we’ll ask DFCS for names. Nov. 20th will be the last day for applications to be turned in.
Christmas Dinner – Amy is asking for help for the Family Promise dinner that will be held on Dec. 25th for 3 families (or 14 people max). For next year, Amy wants to plan for the whole parish to have a Christmas Day Party. Fundraiser will be held next year to help out the cost to cover the Family Promise project. Committee suggested donating $200 to Family Promise IF NEEDED and was agreed upon.
Other outreach – KoC used to give out teddy bears. Now kids are given choices. Bev and Marlene collect decent stuffed animals throughout the year for this. After SOR classes, students could buy cookies. The money collected from this is used to purchase bibles for the religious ed program.
Turkey Box – Chuck Johnstone started this and worked on this for several years. He passed away last year. Janet Spoden wanted to continue this program just to support White Co. families who need them but Father Fabio does not want to support this unless it includes surrounding counties. However, Janet will continue on and asked IGA for 50 boxes with the list so church members who are willing to help can buy items, return it there and put a check for Cleveland Walmart to purchase a turkey. People that need a box only have to have a proof of White Co. residency.
