We have an online survey asking for your input on our recently completed Ministry Fair and a general question about our programs and your needs. In addition we are trying to gather some demographic information that could help us design programs that would better fit your needs. The questions requesting name and age are optional but would be as indicated helpful.
As part of our Jubilee Year Arts & Environment Committee will be also be sponsoring a Kids Care Drive. We are looking for items for homeless families. The Martinez Family Shelter is part of Shelter Inc. of which this parish has been very generous with gifts of food and preparing meals.
Following the example of Pope Francis, SJV parish will soon sponsor a refugee family, that has suffered great loss and needs assistance in starting over and learning how to adapt to a new community and culture.
We are a welcoming, compassionate community and have been praying that “God has no body on earth but mine,” so let's get involved!
We still do not have our refugee family assigned, but we need to start getting ready.
