This week's poor box will go to the Social Concerns Committee. A monthly poor box collection continues to be designated to support the mission of the Social Concerns Committee to assist the needy in our community, primarily in our Parish. Typically, it is the first Poor Box collection of each month. While the Social Concerns Committee continues to collect food and clothing on the same first weekend, cash or check donations are particularly welcome. The ability to handle requests received for some limited financial assistance is dependent on these monthly collections as the only means of support. Donations to the Social Concerns Committee can be made at any time and directed to the Rectory. Make your check payable to Holy Cross Church with the designation of Social Concerns on your check. Holy Cross parishioners continue to be very generous and for that we are very grateful!
