CWL Corner:
Please Bring Us Your Large Milk Bags ~ There will be a box at the back of the
church to collect large milk bags in. Our CWL ladies as well as some school
children are planning to start in the fall to weave these into sleeping mats to be sent
to poor countries. It takes 400 bags to make one mat, so we really need your help
to provide the materials!
A sample of the mats will be on display after Mass this weekend at the back of
the church. Please take a minute to have a look! These mats provide a dry and
bug free place for these families to sleep.
