A successful collection. See how full the truck and a van was loaded, plus a second pick up was needed [Login to view all the photographs in the picture gallery].  The pictures do not include all of the confirmation students that helped - others left earlier.

Confirmation Community Collection: April 25, 2015 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Organizations benefiting from the collection:

A Hand Up, Inc (household items to help furnish apartments for people transitioning from shelters to independent living)
The Cromwell Home for Children (used books levels 3rd grade to high school for children in crisis and their families)
The Catholic Worker House (used bicycles)
The Food Pantry at St. Michael's Church (paper and plastic grocery bags)
House of Bread  (collectibles, costume jewelry and small household items and decorations for the Thrift Shop)block

soups onIn this case, the fourth time was the charm. On March 8, over 150 parishioners packed into the St. Thomas Moore Hall for the Confirmation program's fourth annual "Soup for a Cause" event. It was by far our most successful year yet, both in terms of attendance and money raised: $1,100, for the House of Bread's Kids Cafe in Hartford.

The 3rd Annual Faith Fair was a wonderful success! Students from grades one through six proudly displayed posters and projects while parishioners of all ages browsed and admired their hard work. This was a wonderful opportunity for the children of the parish to share all that they’ve been learning about their faith. Topics included the Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, the life of Jesus, and much more. Members of the parish were “put to the test” as they completed a quiz on Old Testament prophets. All in all, it was a wonderful time of community and faith-building for the entire parish. Thank you so much for coming and supporting our kids, and a special thanks to those of you who brought delicious baked goods!
