How can we thank you for your kindness and support in providing for us in so many ways through the giving tree this Christmas? From toiletries and groceries to winter fleeces, books and goodies, we were so touched by your generosity. May the Lord reward you and your families 100-fold!
As a house of formation with young women who are just taking their first steps in religious life, it was such a joy to see their astonishment at how cared for we are by all of you. Please know that you are in our prayers daily, and that we feel very blessed to live and serve here at St. Alphonsus. May your 2019 be filled with every grace and blessing!
There are not enough words to thank you for your generous donations at the school auction to help keep our school library a strong resource for St. Al’s. We are very excited to purchase many, many of the books the kids have requested and to add current works to our catalog. Plus, we can’t forget about the oh-so-important supply of book repair tape! Thank you and God bless you all for allowing us to continue to promote literacy and community at St. Alphonsus.
(Keep an eye on this spot for an update on our first wish list treasures!)
Guess what? We don’t only need new books in the library! If you have gently used children’s books that you no longer need at home, please consider donating them to our library. Look for the library book donation box near the school office. Questions about what we’re looking for? Email Melissa Rodriguez-Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Scrip committee would like to thank our volunteers who are graduating this year:
Without their dedication to Scrip, we wouldn’t be able to run the Scrip program as effectively as we do!
Scrip is looking for volunteers interested in helping sell Scrip next year. We are looking for people during the week and especially after the weekend masses. It’s a great way to earn volunteer hours and meet other St. Al’s families. Please contact Mija Hamilton if you are interested or would like more info.
