Cupertino; 24 October 2014 The SJC Community has a 40-year history of serving our neighbors and community with the annual Thanksgiving Basket Program. We are relying once again on your generosity to accomplish a successful canned food and monetary collection this year.
The Parish Food Drive kicks off the Nov. 1-2nd weekend and runs through the Nov. 22-23 weekend. The 2014 Outreach Collection is this weekend Oct. 25-26th. Checks made out to St. Joseph's Outreach and monetary donations will be collected after mass. One basket typically runs about $30.
Please keep the bulletin "Food Drive" insert as a reminder of the types of non-perishable foods that are needed. The list can be downloaded here:
Place your donations in the Food Collection bins outside the SJC sanctuary and chapel, after checking the expiration dates of course!
Parishioners in need of a basket may please contact the Parish Office at 1-408-252-7653.
Thank you for your generosity!
Bereavement Ministers RetreatYou are invited to take time out for yourself to engage in discovery, reflection and spiritual renewal. As we cultivate our awareness of God's presence in the many facets of our lives, our ministries become more grounded and vibrant. This capacity is strengthened both individually and communally. Essential elements of bereavement care will be integrated. Music, prayer, and creative expression will support our times of silence and focused sharing.
Saturday 15 Nov 2014, 9:00 AM ~ 1:30 PM, SJC Community Center.
