Good Sam Outreach

Bethany House is grateful for your support!

Bethany House updates their "wish list" monthly. Thank you so much to all who have been giving so generously!

Please place your donations  in the collection box in the Narthex when you come for mass.  (Please enter the narthex via the door on the left and remember to wear your mask and to social distance!!!)  The Good Sam Outreach Committee will deliver our donations to Bethany House at the end of the month. Thank you very much!

Giving Tree - Gifts and Fuel Money

Thank you to all who brought in gifts! Our first delivery filled two tables at Our Lady of the Americas! (See our socially distanced photos at the right.)
Our final delivery was made Sunday December 20 after mass.

We are still accepting fuel money through the end of December so if you wish to give fuel money to provide heating funds for needy parishioners of Our Lady of the Americas, please make your check payable to "St. Paul’s Church" and include “fuel money” in the memo line. Fuel checks can be put in the donation box or slots in church. Thank you for your generous support of these families!

If you have questions please call Cathy Fetes at 747-6534. The need this year is greater than ever…. Thank you for your continued generosity! May God bless you all during this holiday season. Please stay safe and healthy!

Winter Coat Collection

As in past years, Good Sam Outreach is asking you to donate winter clothing for distribution to the poor. Your gently used winter coats, jackets, boots, scarves, hats, mittens, and gloves are desperately needed.

Please place your clean donations in the covered chest outside the church’s front doors. As the chest fills, members of Good Sam Outreach Committee will deliver them to a local ministry.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of the poor in our area. If you have any questions, please email Ellen Santora,
