Holy Thursday Collection

We ask you to please be generous to the Holy Thursday collection being taken for the needs of St Mary Parish, as we all know about the poverty of St Mary Church and all the struggles St Mary Parishioners have had to go through. We have all been blessed by the generosity of Jesus, especially as we contemplate this week of His suffering and death. We can only hope to respond with what meager gifts we give compared to His goodness.
