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.)
