Parishioners at St. John’s are creating sleeping mats for homeless people. The mats – waterproof, cold resistant, light to carry, and offering cushioning from the pavement or hard earth – are given to the homeless who sleep outdoors in hopes that they will stay warmer and drier.

Right now we are not collecting any more plastic grocery bags as we had such a wonderful and overwhelming influx of them from the winter and spring. Keep checking back to see when we will be asking for bags again!
