UNSTUFF YOUR CLOSET!  The Pastoral Region Thanksgiving Clothing Drive 2020 will be different due to COVID. We encourage you to pack up your gently used clothing only, in small grocery bags to fit in the bin door of the St. Vincent DePaul collection box on Sacred Heart back parking lot.  In order to provide a steady flow of donations, please donate throughout November. Please drop in the bags at your convenience, however if the bin is full (ALLELUIA), please do not leave bags on the outside of the bin. As a bonus our St Vincent de Paul team will get credit and be able to provide vouchers to the needy in our Pastoral Region.  We have also supported Fairfield’s Rethreads (513-549-6394) throughout the years, please call them if you want to help them. Serve City at 513-737-9701, 622 East Avenue Hamilton 45011 will take bedding and small household items.   Put Giving into ThanksGiving.

On Mondays at 11:00 AM the Archdiocesan  Catholic Social Action team hosts Praying in Solidarity weekly prayer. This is a joint effort with Catholic Charities of SW Ohio, and it is be hosted Live on the Catholic Charities of SW Ohio Facebook page. 
The Peace Prayer of St. Francis 
 Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood, as to understand; to be loved, as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.    Amen
