Serve the Community
THANKSGIVING MEAL DONATIONS
Thanksgiving meal donations sought for needy families. As Thanksgiving approaches parishioners are asked to consider donating checks, cash or grocery gift cards in order to provide special Thanksgiving meals for needy families. Last Fall, through your generosity we raised more than $1,600 in donations which help supplement meals for about 50 families. The simplest way to help is through contributions of cash or checks in the envelopes in the church pews or at the office. We will then purchase gift cards (mostly from Safeway) and turn them over to St. Mathew’s or River City Food Bank. They in turn identify families most in need of assistance arranging a special meal commemorating Thanksgiving.
Donors can use the envelopes in the pews, marking them Thanksgiving food donation giving cash, check or actual gift card. More information is available from John Jervis, 482-1354, or in the office.
We live out the Gospel when we participate in reaching out to those in need.

Serve each other
Coming together to be God's people is fundamental to who we are. By serving each other in a variety of ways, we are formed into a community of God.
Service to God is a core value at St. Michael’s. We have many ways in which we answers God’s call to be of service to Christ and each other.
