St Francis Xavier Catholic Church CORPUS CHRISTI SUNDAY

PUT YOUR FAITH INTO ACTION: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Week of July 10th to 14th The parish is once again providing an opportunity to put your faith to work this summer at the CAMBA respite shelter at Old First Reformed Church. For several years, our neighbor, Old First Reformed Church, is providing space for a shelter over the summer. Various faith communities each volunteer for a week during the summer to "staff" the shelter at Old First and for the 6th year, our parishioners will be providing meals and overnight presence for the 10-12 men housed each night. SFX is committed to staff M-F the week of July 10th to 14th. If you are going to be away that week but would like to volunteer, St Augustine will be staffing the week of July 4th.
CAMBA, a Brooklyn-based non-profit agency that "provides services that connect people with opportunities to enhance their quality of life," transports the men to the shelter each evening and provides cots, bedding, towels and toiletries. The men, or guests, are working poor or those working with CAMBA to get their life back on track. They are screened by CAMBA for acceptance for the summer respite shelters established around the borough. The guests set up their cots and remove linens, put cots away in the morning. Volunteer opportunities include either bringing and serving food for dinner or staying overnight.

ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL We have made our assigned goal. Thank you to all who participated this year.

Again, God Bless You. The St. Vincent de Paul Society.
