During COVID, we changed from collecting food and cash/check donations after each Mass on the second full weekend of the month to utilizing a drop off program from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the second Saturday. While this resulted, for the most part, in greater food donations, our cash and check donations really dropped off. A lot of people prefer to donate by cash or check but now it was no longer convenient.
We would like to change that part, beginning this month, by offering Parishioners the opportunity to make their donations before and after each Mass on the second weekend of the month. We are looking for two volunteers, per Mass on Saturday and Sunday, to collect donations from Parishioners. This would entail standing outside of the entrance with a bucket and taking the donations. There will be a bag for you to deposit the donations in and secure them until they are picked up.
We will continue with the food truck program on the second Saturday.
We would ask that you arrive one-half hour before Mass begins to accept donations and then again after Mass until all the Parishioners are gone.
