More and more families are not able to make ends meet and are coming to St. Christine’s Community Services food bank for groceries. The food bank currently helps 195 families each week; a 35% increase since last fall. The need for food to feed these families is great. To help stock the food bank, St. Cyril’s will be sponsoring a non-perishable food drive at the Activity Center on Saturday, September 19, from 9:30AM to 11:30AM.
The foods that are most needed are:
canned meats or tuna, cereal, salad dressings, and taco or pizza making kits but donations of any canned or packaged foods (no glass jars, please!) will be greatly appreciated.
Please bring your donation in a sturdy cardboard box or a bag ready to be transported.
Because of current restrictions, this will be a drop-off food collection. What does that mean? It will be a lot like the drop off for Catechism. You will enter the Activity Center parking lot from 18 Mile Road and drive to the back of the building.
Please have your donations in your trunk (preferably) or back seat. Volunteers will direct you to place your donation in the back of the delivery truck or will do this for you while practicing social distancing. You will then continue around the Activity Center and exit to 18 Mile Road. To make the drop-off run smoothly and quickly,
If you are attending the 9:00AM Holy Mass, please park in the church’s main lot.
If you are a parishioner and in need of food, please contact the Parish Office or speak with Fr. Libor or Fr. Juraj after Mass.
Flag Retirement Drive:
Also on Saturday, September 19, from 9:30AM to 11:30AM, the Knights of Columbus 4th Degree Blessed Virgin Mary Assembly 1839 will be collecting unserviceable U.S. Flags.
Please enter the Activity Center parking lot from 18 Mile Road and drive to the back of the building and a member of the Knights of Columbus will respectfully collect your old, unserviceable flags.
These flags will be delivered to the proper location to be retired in a dignified and solemn ceremony at a later date.
