Our parish needs to raise $46,000 annually to support the parish, teachers & students of our ministries in Haiti. Money is raised through various fundraising activities throughout the year, including an ongoing can drive & the garage sale at this year’s parish festival.

There is a bin outside the barn on Columbus St. to collect cans for donation. (In 2020, we raised $1,700 from donated cans.)
