Often people ask how Social Concerns monies are spent. Here is a breakdown: Food for meals at the Ronald McDonald House; money for holiday craft materials which are donated to area nursing homes; supplies (including snacks for the scouts) for the Thanksgiving Food Basket drive, and money for bulletin board pictures. Expenses for the Prayer Shawl Ministry- boxes, ribbons, tissue paper, and labels. Also, toiletries for the Open Arms Men's Shelter, yarn for Prayer Shawls... Without your support we could not provide this help or opportunities for our parishioners to become involved. We also participate in other activities - volunteering at the Food Bank, collecting school supplies for children in need in the Bronx, collecting gifts for Rosary Hill, providing Christmas presents for families in need, participating in the MS walk... Thank you for all your support of our Social Concerns and our Prayer Shawl Ministries!!!
