But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

Join us any time on Fridays June 16th & July 21st from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Como Community Center, 4900 Horne Street to assist in this worthy endeavor. Sandra Stanley, founder of "Opening Doors for Women in Need" (ODWIN), helped in March with her eight year old granddaughter, so this is a good mission for elementary age children during their Summer Break.

The Daughters of the Holy Cross are collecting ring tabs from soda, soup and pet food cans for the Ronald McDonald House. The aluminum can is valuable, but this small metal pop tab is like a gold nugget to the Ronald McDonald House! It is easily removed from the can, and is clean. There are two 'houses' that are set up at CTR. One is in the youth room, and the other is on the desk in the hallway by the kitchen. Collecting these pop tabs is a great way to teach kids about philanthropy and the importance of recycling; and raising funds to help children and their families at the same time.
