Christmas Outreach Project 2010

Posted by on Nov 12, 2010 at 5:52 pm

Where:

St. Charles Borremeo Church, 178 Dexter St., Providence  RI

When:

Saturday, December 11

8:45 am Depart from STM parking lot

4:00 pm Return to STM

Lunch will be provided.

What:

Primarily a painting project.  This majestic church is aged and in great disrepair.  We will be focusing our efforts on two particular areas of the church that need immediate attention.  We will be washing/cleaning walls, scraping, prepping and painting.  Some of the initial prep work will be done before we arrive.  We could use some 5-8ft. ladders.  All other materials will be provided.

How:

Organize and transport St. Thomas More volunteers (adults and teenagers; no small children, please) for an ambitious service project in an inner city setting.

With enough help, we think  this project can be completed in this single work-day.  St. Charles’ parishioners will join with us; it should be interesting and fun!

Why:

It is the season of giving, the season of counting one’s blessings, the season of putting our faith into action.  St. Charles’s parish and soup-kitchen is a true melting-pot of many different cultures and languages, a Catholic parish very different from ours in population and economics, but exactly alike in its love of neighbor and devotion to the Eucharist.  To bring our two communities together in this Christmas Project is a great gift to present to Jesus on His birthday!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

(We need a rough count on how many people will be going with us to St. Charles.  Please RSVP if you can help us (tell us how many in your group and if you could bring a ladder).  Respond to:stmcrawford@yahoo.com
