ST. FRANCIS FOOD SHELF
The food shelf is in need of brown paper bags to provide families with non-perishable food items. They can be left in the wooden box in the gathering space of the church. Thank you!
CATHEDRAL SCHOOL NEWS
We are in need of substitute teachers. A four-year degree is required but the degree does not have to be in education. Contact Melissa in the main office at 715-392-2976 for more information. The Cathedral Home and School Association continues to collect Box Tops for Education. They can be found on several products including food, household items, tableware, office supplies and even bakeware. These can be dropped off at the school office. Thank you!
We extend our sympathy & prayers to the family of Frank Christopherson. + May he rest in peace.
