Parish-Wide Day of Service is right around the corner! Thank you to all of you who signed up after Mass last weekend. We already have three projects that are full! Also, thank you to all who generously made a donation. We are excited to be able to serve our parish and community through our projects.
But...we still need YOU!
We still have a few projects that we could use more volunteers. The list below gives some specifics about each project. If you have not yet signed up, we would still love to have you!
Project: Blue Star Mothers
The Blue Star Mothers provide moral support to Oklahoma troops by shipping “Freedom Boxes” to those deployed to Iraq & Afghanistan.
Blue Star Mothers Project #1--volunteers will clean and organize the organization’s warehouse.
- 10-15 middle & high school youth
- 5 VIRTUS trained adults
This is a perfect project for middle or high school students to attend independent of their families (or with a VIRTUS trained parent)! Transportation via trolley will be provided between the parish and work site. Day of Service coordinators will sign off on any volunteer hours for students.
Blue Star Mothers Project #2--Project volunteers will write letters and create religious materials for Oklahoma troops currently deployed.
All are welcome-grab a friend and come support our troops on Veterans Day Weekend!
Project: Church of Saint Mary Pastoral Care Ministry
The Pastoral Care ministry brings the love of the Church to the elderly or ill.
Project volunteers will create a Thanksgiving craft and care package at the Church and deliver the goodies to individuals in their home or nursing facility.
- 20-30 volunteers needed. Children welcome with an adult!
This is a perfect project for families with younger children or those who would like to serve without heavy labor, or feel called to answer Jesus' request that we care for the ill and welcome the stranger.
Project: Catholic Charities Coats for Kids & Thanksgiving Food Baskets
Catholic Charities provides warmth and nourishment to the poor of Tulsa.
Project volunteers will help Catholic Charities organize and set up for these two large-scale assistance programs.
Details about the day...
- 20-40 volunteers needed.
Parish-Wide Day of Service will be held on Saturday, November 10. We will begin with 8am Mass at St. Mary's. After Mass we will divide into the assigned projects and work for about two and a half hours. Everyone will return to the parish for a very casual potluck lunch and reflection time. We will finish by 12:30.
