The Faith Formation Commission and Outreach Commission are teaming up this Lent..
This is a Lenten Renewal Event to "love your neighbors".
We are inviting the members of St. Veronica Parish to help the James Sauls Homeless Shelter in Batavia with some much needed upkeep, organization and maintenance.
On Saturday March 9 and March 23 we will be gathering at the homeless shelter located off Old S.R. 32 in Batavia. We will be painting, fixing, laying mulch, repairing picnic tables and organizing their storage sheds. Volunteers can sign up using a Sign Up Genius form on our website for two hour time slots throughout the day.
We will provide some morning sustenance and a mid-day lunch for volunteers and the residents of the shelter.
Later this Spring when the ground dries up a bit we hope to have another event to create a gravel and paver patio for their picnic tables.
The weekends of Feb. 2 & 3 and 9 &10 you will see a "Giving Tree" up for this Lenten Renewal Project. We need monetary donations of any amount to fund the project supplies such as paint brushes, paint, mulch, storage bins and bags, gravel and pavers.
Please pick up a donation envelope from the tree in the narthex and return to the collection basket at Mass or the school office or parish office by February 17. Your contribution is much appreciated.
Be on the look out for the sign up form and get ready to make this Lent a living expression of faith and care.
