Buckets of Hope

This years’ service project will be collecting cleaning supplies for victims of Hurricane Ida as part of the Buckets of Hope effort sponsored by the group Hope’s on the Way. See the list of supplies needed below.

The cleaning supplies can be brought to either church site on the weekends of September 18-19 and 25-26.

We will sort the supplies and fill the buckets on October 2 in the south campus Parish Center. If you are interested in helping or for more information, call Noel Thornton at (708) 522-2914.
