Do you need some help? – Five Assistance Options

Although times are slowly moving back to “normal” for many people, we are aware that there are still those for whom
“normal” might be a long way off. If you, your family or someone you know could use some assistance during this uncertain time, these are just five of the many options that are available. If you need further assistance, please contact the parish office.
