Bags of Blessings

Detroit, MI. Last Thursday several of us went down to St. Leo’s Soup Kitchen for a wonderful Christmas event with the guests. It took us about a half-hour to unload our van to bring them a little Christmas joy and, as it turned out, we received just as much JOY from the guests! This was, indeed, a joint effort. Our 7th and 8th grade religious education students put together several hundred “Blessing Bags” filled with toiletries, things to eat and other personal items. They donated the amount we needed (80) to the SPSE cause at St. Leo’s. The parishioners at St. Therese of Lisieux supplied us with many gift card donations from the Giving Tree at our church for me to purchase hats, scarves, gloves and socks for each of the men, women and children who attended. A gift card to a restaurant for each was also added. My grandchildren helped me to organize and ready everything to be loaded on the van. This was a true “Team Event”!


Evangelizing Faith Formation

Crystal, MN. On the Second Sunday of Advent, I gave out Rosaries, Rosary guides and Chaplet of Divine Mercy prayer cards to students who are going to be receiving their First Communion. I explained to some of the kids and the teacher that the plan was to pray the rosary and Chaplet once a week and then in Lent increase the praying to twice a week. The students and teacher were all happy to receive the sacramentals.
