ST. GABRIEL WOMEN’S CLUB NEWS
The bad news: Unfortunately, our annual Craft Fair is being cancelled this year, due to safety and health concerns. Hilde Knaup personally called each vendor. They understood the decision, agreed with it, and greatly appreciated the individual notifications.
We’ll have to bake twice as many cookies next year!
The GOOD NEWS: Since we’ve had to cancel our monthly meetings, the Executive Board made the following decisions regarding our charitable contributions:
- Meals for Ellis Hospital staff
- Meals for Rotterdam Police Department
- Gift cards to the St. Gabriel’s food pantry – twice
- Gift cards to Fr. Belogi, Fr. Rossi, Fr. Leo, and Sister Rose
- Checks to St. Gabriel’s graduating seniors
Thanks to Emilia Guidi and all the Board members in making these contributions happen.
To Our Members: we all miss each other and look forward to the day when we can meet again in person!
More Good News: As Christians, our source of hope and peace never waivers despite life’s circumstances. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Then the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)
