Thanksgiving Outreach

Posted: 11/12/2014

As we have for many years, Holy Comforter will gather food for a Thanksgiving Outreach ministry. We are planning to partner once again with the Primo Center for Women and Children on the West Side of Chicago, one of the partner agencies of Episcopal Charities and Community Services in the Diocese of Chicago. Attached to this e-blast you will find a suggested list of items to bring into church between November 16 and 21, and we will sort and transport the items on Saturday, November 22 (volunteers always welcomed!) Please be as generous in this outreach effort as you can be, and remember that having kids take part in choosing and bringing the items is both an act of service-one of the Four Keys of our Vibrant Faith-that, over time, can become a ritual and tradition, another of the Four Keys! icon Thanksgiving shopping list here...

In addition, please don't forget our Thanksgiving outreach financial offering, monies from which support our broader ministries of compassion and care throughout Chicago and far beyond. Envelopes for Thanksgiving offerings can be found in the parlor and church. Thank you, in advance, for your generosity.
