  1. Please consider donating personal hygiene and cleaning supply products for St. Catherine’s Closet. All donations go to help those in most need in our community, and many people have already benefited from your generosity. Let us continue this good work. Please bring donations to the Parish office anytime during regular business hours.
  2. A Fruitful Harvest update.  We have $360,000 pledged from 238 families at St. Tom’s. Our goal is $515,000, much of which is for a badly needed new roof.  Please return your pledge card to the diocese this week We continue to offer a $50,000 matching gift for those who contribute.
