This year we are collecting gifts for: Ursuline Sister’s of Mount St. Joseph, Sister’s of Charity of Nazareth- Nazareth Nursing Home; Sacred Heart Home; Little Sister’s of the Poor and Sister’s of Mercy in Nashville. Crosses can be taken from the tree in the Gathering Space up until April 6th. Please return all gifts (unwrapped) NO LATER than April 14th.
The first weekend of each month (exception, December) we invite you to make a donation of canned or boxed food for local food pantries. Please place all food items in the wooden boxes in the Gathering Space of the Church. Please contact Mary Jo Burke at 502-339-8908 with any questions.
MONTHLY COMMITTEE MEETING:
St. Albert’s is a very compassionate and generous parish which allows the Social Concerns Team many opportunities to serve our community, helping those in need. If there is a charitable need or social justice issue you are involved in and are passionate about, we urge you to join us. Social Concerns Committee Meetings are the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in The Sacred Heart Center. Please stop by to meet the current team of volunteers to introduce yourselves while finding out what we are all about.
Since January, the Justice Initiatives Committee has approved several projects for funding.
