Mothers Day Service Opportunities
Mother's Day is almost here, and that means breakfast in bed, cards, flowers, and showers of appreciation for many moms. But several moms in our community are struggling to both financially and emotionally.
Let's bless these moms with a little gift to brighten their day and let them know they are not alone. We are making flower wrapped bath bombs to take to the mothers at Samaritan's Inn.
Do you and/or your family have a few minutes to assemble these little cuties? If so, we'd love to drop the supplies and instructions to you and pick them up when you've finished.
Select Samaritan's Inn Bath Bombs on the SignUp Genius to help out.
Tea Time for the Nuns
We often forget how important our spiritual mothers are to us! Please help is show the nuns at St. Joseph's Residence, as well as other area religious. our appreciation and love this Mother's Day! We will be mailing them a Tea Party In A Box - teacups, teas, cookies, and sweet messages. If you are able to make sweet cards for the nuns, select Tea Time for the Nuns on the SignUp Genius.
Mothers Day at St. Francis
We have not forgotten how special our St. Francis moms are too us, too! Help us remind the moms of the parish that they are the ones who typically 'light' the spiritual flames in our homes, the way Mary did when she bore The Light. We are filling little organza bags with an encouraging note and a candle. Select Mother's Day at St. Francis on the SignUp Genius to help out.
Mobile Food Pantry
The Catholic Charities Mobile Food Pantry partners with the North Texas Food Bank to provide food to those in need. They are reporting a rapid increase in the number of families needing help.
