It’s time for our annual

BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE!

Help support the families served by the Little Sisters of the Assumption in East Harlem.

Please bring items to church before the end of August! 

 

Getting children ready for school success is difficult for vulnerable families in East Harlem when it costs an average of $75 per child for school supplies. Please help the LSA Family Health Service by bringing a few of the following NEW items to the St. Joseph Altar of St. Monica’s Church (413 East 79th St.) during the month of August.

ITEMS MOST NEEDED

 

Backpacks                 Binders                  Notebooks                   Pens                  Pencils                     Glue sticks                 

             Colored pencils           Markers                      Crayons               Folders               Loose leaf paper

LSA Family Health Service, founded by the Little Sisters of the Assumption, strengthens and empowers vulnerable families and children by meeting their basic needs for food, healthcare, education and a safe home, in the belief that affirming families in their own dignity improves the entire community.  

 

 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANNUAL GENEROSITY TO THIS CAUSE!

Flocknote is a digital platform used throughout the archdiocese by which our parish can communicate information to you in real time about activities in our parish, schedule changes, and other important information by way of a text message.

To sign up Click on the Flocknote image above.

We hope that many of you will take advantage of this new avenue of communication. Besides sending out a blanket text to the entire parish, we can also target specific groups such as liturgical ministers, Parish Council, Senior Citizens, Young Adults, Green Team, and other parish groups.

At a time when things can change rather quickly, Flocknote is a terrific way to stay on top of things.
