Black Bag Collection:  We are thankful to many of you who continued to give to the Black Bag collection, despite the fact that we have not been able to physically pass the black bag.  We continue to be 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.  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 ca 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 May 16-17.  You can drop off donations in the Narthex beginning Tuesday, May 12 though Monday, May 18 (10 a.m.).  During the months of March and April, even though Mass was not being held in the church because of the virus, over 1,000 pounds of food and supplies for MICA were brought to the Narthex by parishioners.  This was amazing – thank you and please keep it up!
