Cards for Seniors

For any families who might be able:

Father Jim has suggested a possible community service project for those who like to draw pictures or would consider making a card for seniors in the community:


Father Jim has put out a request for our younger students to write cards for those elderly people who are shut-in at this time.


Students are asked to drop off their cards directly at OLPH church where they will take care of delivering them.


Father Jim said there will be a box labeled "Cards for seniors" at the church for students to drop off and the deadline is May 29.
