|Thanksgiving Food Drive |
It’s time again for the Thanksgiving Food Drive for our sharing parish, St. Agnes of Bohemia. This year Thanksgiving is on November 27th so we will be delivering on Monday, November 22, and will be accepting donations anytime. We will be working with the Jewel Store this year, as our friend, Chris, former manager of Dominick’s, has assured us that they can take this on. Chris Javens is now manager at Jewel on Green Bay Rd. Please make your check out to “Thanksgiving Food Collection” and send it to Lloyd and Katie Maday, 2748 Eastwood Ave., Evanston 60201. Needless to say, the younger generation will do all the heavy lifting! Thank you for your continued support of this project.
|All Souls Remembrance|
During the month of November we will have a table at the front of the church for you to bring photos of your loved ones who have died, not only this year, but in past years. You may pick them up at the end of November. Please sign their names in our book, and call the rectory to make sure we have the names for our bulletin that will be read at Mass. The Mass for All Souls Day on Sunday, November 2 at 5:00pm is a very beautiful celebration. We encourage families to bring up a candle for your loved ones during the service. Candles will be provided.
