Assistance for Tent Communities

Parishioners, did you know that at any given time, there are 3-5 tent communities at the base of Look-out Mountain? These are folks who do not have permanent homes. Shelter is available in the form of simple tents that can be purchased through Amazon Prime for less than $50.00. Go to https://smile.amazon.com/Pacific-Pass-Water-Resistence-Portable/dp/B085V2WMRP.

One empty cannister is on display in the narthex for the next … Continue reading
