OPEN THE DOORS According to feedback from our parishioners, some of you expressed a desire to have St. Francis Xavier open to our community for more hours during the week. To make it happen we need your help -- we are looking to set up teams of volunteers willing to commit to being in church on Saturdays for a couple of hours, on a rotating basis, with one or more partners. To find out more information, or to submit your name, please contact Sister Helene.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED AT RESPITE SHELTER July and August Old First Reformed Church (7th Ave. and Carroll St.) will be hosting a respite shelter for the homeless, run in conjunction with local non-profit CAMBA. The Old First site will provide a safe bed and a warm dinner to around 12 guests each night. As part of St. Francis Xavier's work on social justice issues, our parish has committed to helping with the shelter for the week of August 18th to 22nd. Please contact Regie Hawkey to sign up or request more information.
