Several thousand dollars were pledged at convention, but more support is needed. Donations can be sent to "Diocesan House, 333 Wyandotte St, Bethlehem, PA 18015, attn: Charlie Barebo (note: New Hope Books).

Recycle For The Roof
Now that our commitment to Kajo Keji has been completed, let's continue our 5₵ recycling efforts to benefit our roof/steeple project! Please bring in your clean and not crushed 5₵ plastic bottles and cans and leave in the entry way of the Parish Hall where there is a box.
Please make sure it has the NY 5₵ stamp on it or it will not be accepted by the recycling center.
All proceeds will go to the roof/steeple project!
We collected over $1000 for Kajo Keji so keep those bottles and cans coming in!
