If you are interested in playing bridge, usually the second Monday of each month from September through May, please contact Tina Weldon or Pat Paas. We meet at the MCL in Castleton at 10:30 am. Bridge is our excuse for a luncheon and day out. You do not have to be a serious bridge player to participate. New members are always welcome!
St. Pius X Youth Ministry would like our college students to know we are praying and thinking about them throughout the year. Please help us keep connected with them by filling out a form and placing it in the mailbox at the Information Center in the Narthex.
Catholic Relief Services - Giving hope to a world in need. Planting resilience in Timor Leste. This small Southeast Asian country was only 4 years old when it held its first election in 2006. Tragically, violence convulsed the young nation. Thousands of homes were burned down during election protests. Families lost all possessions, but they escaped and ran to the mountains. Years later, they were able to rebuild their homes, but because 70% of the population are subsistence farmers, even small crises like illness can trigger a downward spiral of debt and selling assets. The CRS REACT project is helping families build a safety net against disaster. It shows people new ways to store their seeds and teaches them how to grow enough nutritious vegetables in climate resilient gardens to keep themselves healthy, while still having a surplus to sell. That surplus builds a future for their children, making education possible. Learn more at crs.org/you-did-it-for-me.
