A LETTER FROM OUR PASTOR

Dear Parishioners,

Our 2023-2024 Pastoral Year has begun beautifully last week.

This week, precisely from Monday, September 18, 2023, instructions will begin in the Faith Formation Department. We are blessed to have about 1,000 kids who will be participating in the program.

There are about 85 catechists who will be teaching. Many other parishioners are also volunteering their time, talents and treasures to assist in many ways.

On behalf of the parish  administration, I write to express our sincerest gratitude to all the parents, catechists, and all the volunteers who will be making a difference in the faith lives of our parish children this season.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!  THANK YOU!!!

God bless you all.
Fr. Seth

WE ARE GRATEFUL!

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for holding another successful food drive. They collected over 16 carts of food and various other generous donations for the St. Frances de Chantal Parish Social Ministry.

Thank you to the Community of Wantagh and all who support our ministry. It is because of your generosity that we are able to continue to serve those in need in our community, especially in today’s hard economic times.

Blessings,
Parish Social Ministry

Knights of Columbus partner with Stop & Shop

Your Knights of Columbus supports the efforts of our Saint Frances Outreach.

The Knights have partnered with Stop & Shop to help those in need. Please see how you can support this awesome program and make many people happy (with flowers) and others fed.

Thank you,
Deacon Bob, Chaplain

Every month, we receive a check from Stop & Shop from the Bloomin’ 4 Good Program.

We encourage our parishioners to help fight hunger with this program.

What is the Bloomin’ 4 Good Program?

Fight hunger with every bouquet of flowers sold! Each time a shopper purchases the specially marked $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet, $1 is donated to a local hunger organization selected to benefit for the month.

$1 Donation = 10+ Meals. It’s as simple as that!

Every bouquet sold works to fight hunger across the local communities served by Stop & Shop.
