but soon children in our community will be starting back to school and many will need help gathering together the necessary supplies.

The Little Red Truck is going on vacation!

Please save your aluminum cans and all metals, until late July. All the proceeds from this recycling help fund the Guatemalan mission.

Bean Bag Chairs Needed

Seminole Leagues, Holy Cross’ very own sports ministry, is quite proud of our first year. At our Aero Lane Campus, we hosted an Upward Sports Program that saw 172 different kids participate in one of our leagues. This summer we are hosting summer sports camps for incoming 3rd -8th grades and are creating a room for them to “recharge”. It is our vision to have this room filled with bean bag chairs…for them to escape the heat. If you have an old one or can pick one up while you are out and about, please donate it to the Church Office.

Muslim Mission Society Development

LWML’s mite monies, $7500, will be going to this group. This allocation will help develop the Sisters of Faith Muslim Mission Society which will reach out to the adherents of the false religion of Islam. The ladies will be collecting mites today.
