ANNUAL COLLECTION FOR HAITI Nativity’s annual collection of shoes ( new or gently used) as well as over-the-counter medicines / dental supplies will take place February 8th through March 15. Items needed include Tylenol , ibuprofen, antacids, vitamins, cold and cough medicines, eye and ear drops, anti -fungal and antibiotic creams, hydrocortisone cream, any new and unopened medicines. Also needed are toothbrushes, toothpaste and small wrapped soaps. School supplies are also badly needed: crayons, pencils, chalk, erasers, rulers, small solar powered calculators. These items may be placed in the labeled boxes in the back and at the side entrances to the church. They will be packed and sent to Haiti by sea container in late March. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. The people of our twinned parish, St Michael the Archangel, thank you!
Join Ms. Mary at our 9am Mass every Sunday for Children’s Liturgy of the Word. The children will experience the same readings and rituals as the larger parish assembly, but use a special children’s lectionary with a homily experience geared for their age group.
We are in the process of rotating the winter and summer clothing and taking inventory of our needs.
In the meantime, the following items are in VERY LOW SUPPLY.
2. baby wash and lotion
7. receiving blankets
8. bins, clean used or new (about 18 gallon size).
I know they are not as exciting to shop for compared to sweet
little outfits, but these basic items are so important for the care
of the babies!
Items can be placed in the wooden bins at the foot of the crucifix
in the narthex of the church. Also, items such as strollers, pack
n plays, walkers, etc are always welcome. We ask that you
please clean and prepare the items for immediate use as there are
no laundry facilities or space to clean items at the center.
If you have any questions, please call Melissa at 662-9339 ext 145 or email email@example.com.
