ST. FRANCIS ALTAR SOCIETY – “NO BAKE” SALE
No baking! No bowls or pans to wash! No selling or buying of baked goods and no calories! Rather, we ask you to support the Altar Society with your prayers and a financial gift, as if participating in an actual bake sale. During the month of May, we will accept donations which can be placed in the collection box in the gathering space of the church, drop it in the mail slot at the entrance to the parish office or mail it to the parish office at 2316 E. 4th Street. The Altar Society contributes financially to the many needs of the parish. We thank you for your support. Also, the Altar Society is hoping to have a “THIS N’ THAT” SALE in late August or second week of September. Please place your “treasures” aside for this sale. (No clothing, bedding, mattresses of box springs.)
THANK YOU! to Donna Stubbe and all of the wonderful volunteers – cooks, dessert makers, servers, delivery people, dining room and carry-out workers and all who made our “take-out” Roast Beef Dinner a huge success. We served more than 500 take-out dinners!
ST. FRANCIS FOOD SHELF
Our food shelf continues to serve 3-5 families per week, sometimes more due to the pandemic. We are currently in need of the following: peanut butter, jelly, pancake mix, syrup, boxed potatoes and canned stew. Also, monetary donations, which are used to purchase gift cards for perishable food items are always welcome. Thank you!
