Charities Weekend - Jan. 20th & 21st

Join us in the Parish Hall after all of the Masses Jan. 20th & 21st for Charities Weekend! Come and see what our parishioners are doing to help the parish and community.
 
Christ Child Society: a nonprofit Catholic organization of about 300 volunteers serving God’s needy children in the Greater Milwaukee Area. Stop by to see the wonderful works the Christ Child Society is doing in our community to help clothe the babies in need.


Two of our primary programs are Layettes and My Stuff Bags. A play pen will be provided to place new items for needy children.  Please consider helping these children by placing some of these items in the available play pen.


LAYETTES – A bag of essential baby items is given to needy mothers as they leave the hospital with their newborn.


Needed items include: receiving blankets, crib blankets or quilts, knitted baby hats or sweaters, onesies (size 3 – 6 months), sleep and play outfits (size 3 – 6 months), newborn or size 1 diapers, small cuddly stuffed toys and board books in English or Spanish.


MY STUFF BAGS – A canvas bag of NEW essential personal items is given to children displaced from their homes due to neglect, abuse or violence.


Needed items include: Pajamas (size 2 – 18), undershirts (size 2 – 18), shirts (size 2 – 18), socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste, comb/brushes and small cuddly toys.  In the cold weather we can always use mittens and hats.
