Seeds of Service 2018
Come be a part of our 5th annual Parish-wide, Village-wide, two-day service project, Seeds Of Service on April 8th (bag drop off), and April 14th (bag collection).
Here’s how it works. On Sunday, April 8th we’ll drop off 4500 empty grocery bags on the doors of the homes throughout town. Then on Saturday April 14th, we’ll collect all the full bags left at the front doors and bring them back for sorting and delivering to six worthy charities. Sign up and show up for an hour or two on either or both days with family and friends by clicking here and selecting the time slot and duty that works for you. We have family-friendly jobs for all ages.
Last year’s Seeds of Service was truly a great day for our parish and our parishioners, as with a combined 400 volunteers we collected about 2000 bags filled with food, not including several pallets of bulk donations from two generous parishioners. This year our donations will benefit the Little Sisters of the Poor, the Missionaries of Charity, the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist, HCS Family Services, Peoples' Resource Center, and the Red Lake Mission. You can watch the video from last year’s Seeds of Service here to see what it’s all about.
This year’s event promises to be bigger and better. It’s truly an exciting time to be a parishioner at St. Isaac Jogues, as great things are happening when good people come together to live their faith, serve others, and build a vibrant Christian community. To be a part of this amazing experience performing Christian service with family, neighbors and friends, right in our own backyard, just click here, to sign up yourself and your whole family, and get a free t-shirt in the process.
