Please give prayerful consideration to what you can donate between now and November 30th. Out of caution due to the coronavirus, we will not have envelopes in the pews. Please place your donation in an envelope marked “Thanksgiving Matching Fund” into the Sunday collection. You may also mail in your donation with “Match Fund” written in the memo line. You may also donate online through WeShare.

Tri-Parish Coronavirus Outreach Program
It appears the Coronavirus pandemic will be affecting our daily life for quite some time. Some of us may find a lot of extra time on our hands while others may need extra assistance during this quarantine. This point in time provides an extraordinary opportunity for us to come together as Burlington area Catholics.
Members from your parish outreach committee will be calling to check on your wellbeing and to assess your needs. We will be able to provide help in the following ways:
- Weekly grocery services – help with ordering online, pickup and delivery
- On-call errand service for any immediate needs
- Neighborhood volunteers to check in on you
Although our volunteers will be concentrating on calling elderly parishioners over the age of 70, these services are open to any parishioner who is isolated in quarantine. This includes parents with young children at home or medically fragile members who do not want to leave their homes. Please do not hesitate to call if you would like help or know a fellow parishioner who may need some! If you would like to volunteer, please call your parish coronavirus outreach coordinator:
