On Monday, December 18th, St. Madeleine Sophie Church will host its annual Red Cross Christmas Blood Drive. The drive will take place in the Parish Center from 2pm – 7pm. Our goal is 50 units of blood. The minimum age to donate blood is 16 years of age with parental permission. Please consider GIVING THE GIFT OF LIFE. You are encouraged to make an appointment. Although Walk-ins will be welcome on the day of the Blood Drive, there will be a longer wait time.
Volunteers are needed to make calls to potential donors about the drive, help with check in on the day of the drive and manning the “refreshment table” during the drive. If you are able to help, even for an hour or two, your help would be appreciated. If you have any questions, wish to make an appointment or volunteer to help at this drive, contact Gloria Towle-Hilt at 435-5915 or firstname.lastname@example.org

During this meeting, the men engage in an open and forthright discussion about life, our Catholic faith and communal prayer. All men are invited and welcome to attend. Moderator is Father Leo Markert.
