"Christ In Us" Serving the needs of others...
Christian Service Summer Hours Start in June
In order to allow our volunteers the time to rest and rejuvenate, St. Agnes Christian Service will be reverting to our traditional summer office hour schedule.
This year, Christian Service office will be officially open on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10 AM until 12 noon during June-July-August. More specifically: June 15, July 20, and August 17. Regular (every Tuesday) office hours will resume the day after Labor Day.
During the summertime, the Christian Service email will be checked several times a day and telephone messages will be checked at least 2x/weekly on an irregular schedule. Therefore, if it is an emergency, it would be better to email than to leave a voicemail.
We will be available to fill emergency bedding orders.
… continues thru June 13. This activity benefits new parents working thru Brighton Pregnancy Help Clinic. A special table is set up in our Gathering Space to collect diapers sealed in original manufacturer's packaging. There is a special request for larger size diapers, like 4, 5, and 6 because this is where there is the greatest need. Because of COVID and safety issues, PHC is unable to accept clothes, toys or items such as car seats, high chairs, etc. What a blessing this diaper drive is to new parents! Thank you for helping those who have chosen to take the rewarding path of life!
Migrant Worker Welcome
… is the annual initiative sponsored by the Deacons of Livingston County. This year, Deacon Randy Coffelt (from St Mary-Pinckney and the leader of this project) is asking for our monetary support so gift cards can be provided to arriving workers to purchase their necessities. Please use either your CS envelope in your packet or a plain envelope in the collection earmarked to Christian Service to donate to this worthy cause. Migrant Welcome Baskets runs thru June 13. God bless your generosity!
