Sunday, November 19, 2017 – 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Bundle Up Sunday
The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul at St. Basil’s will collect gently used items for families in need, on the weekend of November 18-19. We accept clothes, footwear, blankets, sheets, towels and drapery, as well as new or nearly new toys, and small household goods. We don’t collect appliances, baby or other furniture, dishes, books or video/audio cassettes.
We donate the goods to families in need, exchange them for vouchers to help the needy, or sell them to support our charitable works. There will be a truck parked at the church all weekend, and volunteers will be there before and after the Saturday and Sunday Masses. Please tie up your donation bags to make handling easier, and to prevent spoilage. Thank you for your kind support.

Advent Blue Books
