Fr. Ed Kelly Lecture Series
This year, the Fr. Ed Kelly Lecture Series will focus on the Integrity of Creation and environmental issues. Please join us on October 3 and 24, and November 14 at 7:15 p.m. for more information on this very timely topic. See program for details.
Glove and Hat Collection
The SEEC Confirmation Service Project team is collecting hats and gloves for the day laborers. Our goal is to help keep them warm as we move into the winter months since many are classified as homeless. We will be accepting inexpensive new winter hats and work gloves. Look for our Confirmation team members and collection bins after all masses on Nov. 1st and 2nd.
Registration for our Thanksgiving Baskets will be Thursday Nov. 6 beginning at 9:30. Volunteers are needed from 9 AM until noon. Spanish speaking volunteers are especially needed. Come for an hour or for the morning! Please contact Michelle Knight, email@example.com, 703-979-5580.
Each year we bake over 200 pies to accompany our Thanksgiving baskets to those in need. This year we are in desperate need of bakers. Baking will take place in the parish hall on Saturday, November 22 starting at 10 a.m. through the afternoon, or you may drop off a pie you've already baked at home. To volunteer, contact Katie Remedios: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Toy Drive for O.A.R.
We are a donation site for O.A.R. (Offender Aid and Restoration) and their Toy Drive for Christmas. Their goal is to provide 3 presents to the children of every incarcerated person in Arlington. Next weekend, Nov. 1 and 2, please bring new, unwrapped toys for children ages 1-14 and place them in the collection box. For more information, contact Michelle Knight, email@example.com.
