May God bless you for your kindness and generosity. Be assured that the face of many a child will be brightened if you . . . .Reach for a Star!
Our annual Christmas project, “Reach for a Star,” is in need of volunteers.
We need help covering Masses, sorting gifts and transporting gifts in December. Our program has been very successful due to all of you who have volunteered in the past. We urge you to sign up now by calling Outreach at 631-265-2668. This is truly a labor of love.
