Join us, using your time, talent and treasure to help meet the needs of others…through service!

 
  • Our mission is to offer students in grades K-8 opportunities to put into action the teachings of Jesus to love & serve one another.
  • Service can be as simple as making bookmarks to accompany the books collected for Hasbro Children's Hospital or as involved as making lunches for the needy at Sandwich Club.
  • Service projects will be listed here as they become available. Some projects will be limited to the number of student volunteers we can take. 
  • Jr. SM generally meets once a month. 
  • Service hours are granted to middle school students.  
  • Parent permission slips are required to participate. 
 

 Sandwich Club
        
    • Students assemble 200 or more sandwiches and bag food items which will be distributed by Mobile Loaves & Fishes to our neighbors in need without shelter.
    • Sandwich Club meets generally the 1st Friday of every month in the church basement.  If you would like to participate, you will find monthly reminders in The Link to sign up.
    • If you are interested in sponsoring part or all of this event in memory or honor of someone, please contact Cindy Osmanski at ozzy12@cox.net.
 


Blankets for Project Linus
                   
 
  • The quilts provide security, warmth and love to our local young children in need.  Blankets will be distributed by the RI Chapter to children in crisis and in need of a “blanket hug” as is said at Project Linus. 

More information about Project Linus can be found on their local website, www.projectlinus.org/volunteer/?StateKey=RI or on their national website, www.projectlinus.org/.

FILL THE BACKPACKS!

On Wednesday, April 5th, we filled backpacks with essential items, toiletries & rosaries for our local homeless Veterans.  Backpacks were distributed through the Outreach Ministry at St. Luke’s Church by ‘We Share Hope’ in Warren, RI.  The organization’s mission is to “share what we have been given with those who are in need” – such as food, and non-food items to the homeless, working poor, underprivileged, underemployed and children living in poverty.  More information can be found on their website, www.wesharehope.org

We will also made 13 Easter cards for the Carmelite Sisters at the Discalced Carmelite Monastery in Barrington. The aspects of the Carmelite life are “…contained in an atmosphere of contemplative prayer, solitude, silence and community…with a mission to pray for the church and the world”.  A religious article gift shop, enrollment for prayer requests, Mass and quarters for silent retreats are offered at the monastery.  For more information, go to www.barringtoncarmel.com

With thanks & wishes to you All for a blessed Easter,
