Social Concerns - "Thank You" to the Community at St. Teresa of Avila Church

The Social Concerns Committee would like to thank you for your participation in both the Gifts for Baby Jesus and Right to Life Signature Campaign this past Advent. There is a thank you note from Birthright on the back bulletin board for all to see. It took 2 cars and an SUV to get all the Gifts for Baby Jesus home and ready for delivery. Thanks to all who helped load the gifts and to the Brady family for following me home so we only had to do 1 trip. Once again the generosity of this parish astounds me.
