During this great evolution of CARITAS, our church will be providing a large dinner the night of Feb 8th and lunches for all the men in emergency shelter the week of February 7-15. CARITAS calls this a Bridge Week. There are many different opportunities to help with this mission. Please sign up as you are able.
