Please help kids attending the Makowski Early Childhood Learning Center (Buffalo Public School #99) succeed by donating new supplies this year.
If a monetary donation is easier for you, there will be envelopes in the back of church allowing you to contribute to Seeds of Change. This is a not for profit organization created by one of our very own parishioners, Olivia Larson. She is a senior this year at Mt. Mercy Adcademy.

Nativity and St. George’s have supported many vital programs at our twin parish in Haiti for more than 20 years. We support medical and dental clinics, water purification and sanitation programs, and simple hand washing stations. We provide direct financial support to the parish and school of St. Michael in Coq Chante, a microloan program, and a livestock program. This past April, the Haiti committee sent a shipment of 29 boxes containing medicines, school supplies, and other necessities.
The need in Haiti is overwhelming. The weekend of May 18 and 19th is our annual collection for this ministry. Please be as generous as possible.
On behalf of the community of St. Michael, thank you again for your years of generosity. It is truly life-changing and life-saving.
