Thank you for parish support of Souper Bowl of Caring
A big heartfelt thank you to all who contributed to the Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday Collection, held last weekend. Thanks to your generosity we raised $3,064.00 to help local soup kitchens in our community. This year’s collection surpassed the one from last year. The Souper Bowl of Caring favorite team was the New England Patriots, with donations of $1,834.00 vs The Atlanta Falcons donations of $1230.00, an awesome collection that matched an awesome game.
This past Christmas season, the SMYLE Youth Group members participated in the Family to Family program with St. Francis & St. Rose School. Members gathered in the parish center to wrap the presents for their chosen families.
The annual Coat, Blanket, and Sock Drive was a great success! All the donations were distributed to Columbus House and New Reach shelters in New Haven, Little Miracles in our parish, and various groups working with the Veterans Administration in New Haven. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY.
