The food shelf is open regular business hours – 8 AM – 4: -00 PM on Monday through Thursday. Currently the food shelf is in need of the following: soup, crackers, cereal, mac and cheese, boxed potatoes, canned vegetables, canned fruit, pasta, pasta sauce, pancake mix, syrup, etc. There is a wooden box in the gathering space for you to place your donations. Cash donations are always welcome as well with which we purchase gift cards to purchase perishable items such as milk and bread. Thank you for your continuing generosity!
CATHEDRAL PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION
Registration is now open for the 2020-2021 school year. Cathedral Preschool offers a 3-year-old and a 4-year-old program. Cathedral School is also a site for Superior Community Preschool. For more information about any of our preschool programs please contact Kristen Revering at 715-392-2976.
SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DePAUL
We continue to meet with people over video conference calls and have delivered nearly $2000 in goods directly to those in need (tents, clothing, household goods and food to those living in motels). We are still unable to accept goods due to the Catholic Charities Building not having public access and a safe way to handle donations. Financial donations can be mailed to SVDP AT 1416 Cumming Avenue, Superior. If you or anyone you know has a need or you wish to learn more about volunteering please leave a message at 715-398-409. Thank you for your ongoing support!
