Important Dates - Annual Parish Events

BLOOD DRIVES
Sunday in February and August (watch bulletin for exact dates)
Vamos Hall
9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Giving blood in one sense is the ultimate gift. My blood after all, is far more valuable to me than any gifts of time or money I can make. My pint of blood comes close to the traditional tithe. It’s a fraction less than 1/10 of all the blood I have.
Please call 1-800-GIVE LIFE for more information.
