VILLAGE HOUSE NEEDS VOLUNTEERS IN MAY
As you all know, Holy Family is operating an overnight Women’s shelter for the month of November thru December 6th.
Another church (St Paul’s Methodist) stepped up to operate the overnight shelter for the month of May thru June 7th. St Paul’s does not have a large congregation to staff the shelter for the entire 35 days. We have told them that we (all participating parishioners/churches/temples) would provide the manpower.
Please consider volunteering at St Paul’s for the week of May 17th-May 24th. You could help out more if you like but Holy Family is responsible for that week along with St Martin of Tours.
There will be an online signup for St Paul’s on the Village House website
. We will also have a link to it on the HF parish website.
This would be a great opportunity for all of those who have already inquired to help by first helping a sister church, getting to know the women a bit, and learning how things
work prior to the shelter arriving at Holy Family in November.
