ADVENT GIVING TREE
Parishioners are asked to take an ornament, purchase the gift, return it wrapped with original ornament to know what the gift is and what family it belongs to. Gifts need to be returned to Church or the Parish Office by the weekend of December 14th & 15th. It is VERY important that they be turned in by the deadline to allow us time to sort and deliver to families.
We will gladly accept any donations to help with additional families in need. Donations can be brought by the Parish Office Monday through Friday, 8:00am - 2:00pm or dropped in the collection basket at church - Attention: Penny
December is Precious Blood's month to help furnish food for the Help Office. Your non-perishable food items can be placed in the baskets at Church.
HONORARIUM/MEMORIAL FLOWER FUND
Anyone interested in having a Christmas Poinsettia purchased in honor/memory of a loved one, envelopes are available in your monthly packet. Donations should be placed in the collection basket at Church. You are asked to write the name(s) of loved ones in whose honor/memory these are for.

MEALS ON WHEELS
We are looking to start a new ministry called " Meals on Wheels" once a week, for parishioners needing a hot meal. When I visit some of our people’s home who live alone and who depend upon canned food I felt that they deserve a good meal at least once a week. These are people mostly elderly and live alone. If you would be able to cook meals, package them up, and deliver it on a Saturday between 11:00 and 12:00 o'clock to approximately 7 people, please turn your name and phone number into the office. We are looking for 20 people or teams to get started. With 20, we would be able to rotate and only call on you once every 2-3 months. We would like to start this ministry on a trial basis soon, so if you and your family are called to cook and deliver please turn your name and phone number into the Parish Office by November 19 by calling 270-684-6888 or emailing Penny at email@example.com
