Our parish will be cooperating in an effort with Catholic Social Services of Miami Valley to assist refuge families.  The CSSMV is asking local parishes to help collect much needed items to help free up resources allowing refugee families to pay for other vital necessities such as rent, transportation, utilities, etc.  Our parish will be collecting items from two categories, cleaning and hygiene.  On the weekends of May7/8 and May 14/15 we are asking you to drop off the items in the back of church from the following:

Cleaning                                            Hygiene                                            

Toilet brush                                       comb/brush
