Thanksgiving Baskets

It is time to start collecting food for Thanksgiving Baskets.  We ask that if everyone brings one or two items between now and when we distribute the baskets on Nov. 17th, we will be able to fill the baskets.  Most of all, if anyone can contribute a frozen TURKEY or HAM please do so.  Turkey or Ham can be brought to the Rectory and we will store them in our freezers.  Thanks again for your kind generosity.  Let’s help our neighbors so they will have a bountiful Thanksgiving.

Details on what we need can be found in the bulletin.
