CANS AND BOTTLES FOR YOUTH GROUP

STILL COLLECTING DURING COVID-19

Our youth group is still collecting cans and bottles. Please use the blue bags provided on the table in the narthex since they have our SJTW Youth Group bar code to assure all donations are credited to us.  You may drop off cans and bottles at the office or at a BottleDrop location  or bring them to the church.   In an effort to reduce the number of bags of cans and bottles left in the narthex during mass, the Youth Group will collect cans and bottles before and after the 8:30 am, 10:30 am and 1:00 pm masses on the third Sunday of each month. Members of the youth group will collect them on the sidewalk in front of the social room as you enter mass. Thank you for your continued support of our youth group program.
