There is a more complete list by the bins in the foyer, where donations can be placed. Please see Sophia Lanuza if you have any questions.
Our prayer focus this week is the tragic events that took place in Uvalde, TX. Please pray for all who have been impacted by this heinous attack, including victims' families, communities, the authorities, and our nation.
