Black Bag Collection

Again, we are thankful to many of you who are continuing to give to the Black Bag collection. Only a limited number of parishioners will be able to drop their contribution into a box (this will be marked for Black Bag contributions) on the way out of Mass the weekend of June 20/21. We are still experiencing a short fall in what we have budgeted for the agencies that we as a parish, through the Social Justice Committee, support on a monthly or yearly basis. If you would consider finding it in your heart to continue to be generous in helping St. Cecilia’s meet the needs that we have committed to, we would be grateful. In addition to Mass, donations can be made by mailing or dropping off your contribution to the parish office. If you bring your contribution into the church, you can drop your envelope off in the mail slot to your left along the wall. You can also contribute through ACH or Bill Pay via your bank. Please mark all contributions “Black Bag Contribution”. Thank you!

MICA Food Collection

Next collection at St. Cecilia’s will be held the weekend of June 20/21. You can drop off donations in the food cart at Mass or in the Narthex beginning Tuesday, June 16 through Monday, June 22, 10am. During the months of March, April and May, even though Mass was not being held in the church because of the virus, over 1,300 pounds of food and supplies for MICA were brought to the Narthex by parishioners. This was amazing – thank you and please keep it up.
