Family Faith Festival at OLM

“Give Thanks” was the theme of our parish’s Family Faith Festival held last Sunday, November 3.

Activities included: preparing over 200 meal and personal care packages that were delivered to Hope House and Hoboken Shelter; making paper flowers and beads to be given to people we would like to thank; making fresh flower arrangement for the sick. The 8th graders participated in a “Fall Clean Up” around the church.

There were also Thanksgiving crafts, Color A Smile, and Thank You notes that were shared by adults and children. A total of $152 was collected at the decorating cupcakes station for the benefit of the Clean Water Project of Catholic Relief Services.
