With the pandemic still working its ways through society, Christmas Giving at our parish will be a little different than in the past. Most charities are asking for cash donations in order to limit contact with other people and undue exposure to the virus. This year, Jeanne Martin, has discovered a timely and necessary charity for us to contribute to financially. It is the Pope Francis Center in downtown Detroit serving the homeless population. We are partnering with them and have committed ourselves to backpacks for their clientele. Any additional monies would be used by the Pope Francis Center to stock them with the items the homeless needs.
