         Faith Formation Confirmation Service Hours


Calling all Seamstresses:   

We need your help! Our next community service project is making masks for Shriner’s Children’s hospitals and other children’s organizations. Joann Fabrics has the kits but please call them ahead of time to see if they’re available. They run out due to the demands. There are also online sites for simple and no sew masks.


Check out this YouTube link https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4FB--OyTiU&t=131s  for one method.   


If you’d rather donate materials or Joann Fabrics gift cards, please email me at jmislang@stjamesdavis.net and we’ll coordinate a day/time to drop off items. Alma will be in the office 10am-12pm every Thursday. This is a wonderful opportunity to utilize the quiet time to help children less fortunate. Let’s do what we can to spread some love and put a smile on their faces. 

May God continue to bless you all and keep you safe. 

Thank you for sharing your time and talents!
