The SVdP Corner
Thank you, thank you! You really came forward and helped stock our pantry. We were really getting low and now it is ready to help others. We sometimes get up to five calls a day with people needing help with rent, utilities, and food. We hope
to have our yearly report ready to share soon. We are using a new system and the kinks are being worked out. Another big thank you goes out for your generosity in our quarterly collection. This money stays here to help the people in our area. There will be a large basket for nonperishable goods at the Thanksgiving Mass. These can be brought up at the Offertory. God has blessed us with much already and He will bless you more for your generosity in so many ways.
Aside from the monthly cost of running our Churches, we should start to think about that which goes above and beyond those costs. There are many projects that could use some donations as well as people to head them up. There is a desire to place a veterans memorial outside St William Church, St Joseph Cemetery at Blanchet is in need of a Crucifix or statue. If you are interested in either of these , or have your own thoughts, please contact Fr Benton and let him know. Let us put some thought into how to get these projects funded.

Did you know, we are the closest Catholic Church to the “Ark Encounter”? Don’t hesitate to stop by for Mass!
This is the perfect time to learn to pray the Rosary! http://www.theholyrosary.org/ is an excellent site to visit to learn the prayers and Mysteries if you do not already know them. While we are home more due to covid-19, it gives us time to reflect on the Perfect Love, that is God. It only takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to pray, and the results are Graces given to us through our Blessed Mother.
