Let's put our faith into action! The following activities help young children to feel empathy for others, which is an important step towards being the compassionate presence of Christ.
- Take your household shopping and involve everyone in the purchase of shampoo and mac 'n cheese for Caring Hands Outreach Center. These are the items needed for September. Take time to talk about the many choices for these items and the range of costs. If you were living on a limited income, which could you afford to buy? Maybe not your favorite brand?! Place these items in the collection bin in the gathering space at SSJP.
- Plan to attend the Caring Hands Walk for the Hungry on Sunday afternoon, October 14. Registration begins at 1pm at the Food Pantry, 201 9th St., Altoona. We walk from 1:30 to 3:30. Make a $$ donation as a family and/or collect donations from family and friends.
