Thank you Joleen and Michael Rebarchik for your remarkable work chairing the 2018 Boogie and creating the very cool sign for this drive! Barb Dine at the FFIC was thrilled to accept the generosity of St Agnes!

Thank you, Friends – you are amazing!
 

Toity Drive!

The Ronald McDonald House provides a Home-Away-From-Home for families to rest together right in the hospital during a medical crisis, providing support when families need it the most. Now thru September 9, there will be a basket on the CS information table in the Gathering Space to collect mini bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body wash, bars of soap, and other sundry toiletries you would like to share.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Veggie Swap!

Leave what you can - Take what you need! ‘Leftovers’ go to the Fowlerville Family Impact Center. So far this summer, 119 pounds of fresh produce has been taken to FFIC! There are LOTS of green thumbs at St Agnes!

Office Hours

Christian Service REGULAR HOURS resume after Labor Day: EVERY Tuesday: 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM.

Call the parish office at 517-223-8684 and ask for ext. 312 if you need an appointment at a time outside these posted hours. Please remember this is an all-volunteer ministry so it could take a bit of time until we get back with you.

Please let us know if you or someone you know is in need of assistance "before" things get out of hand.

We are here to assist by way of listening, giving direction for assistance and helping in whatever way possible. It is easier to help before we have to deal with shut-off notices or bill collectors.
