Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

At the end of April, we discussed dedicating some of our time and resources to help those in our community who have been affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Not being able to have a meeting to work out the details, we sent e-mails to our brother Knights and asked Father Mike to do the same with the parishioners for whom he had e-mail addresses.

Not surprising, your support far exceeded our initial hope for raising $1,000.00. In one week we were able to send checks to three organizations who are currently helping in our community. We are still receiving support from you, and will continue to distribute every dollar raised to those in need.

So far your generosity has provided help with food, rent, utilities and much needed funds for the kids “Vikings backpack” program. Thank you again for all that you do and please, if you know of anyone who is in need of help, send a message to Father Mike and any support we provide will be strictly confidential.
