Jenny Cia Thanksgiving & Christmas Ministry

This ministry meets once a month to cut out and sew beautiful layettes for stillborn babies. You may also help at home. These layettes provide comfort and are a lasting keepsake for the family of a precious baby who came to earth for only a short time. Please visit www.holysews.org for more information.
Our House is a community initiative to provide to the homeless emergency shelter, housing and children’s daycare while job skills are learned, hope is nurtured, and opportunities are found to help the homeless re-enter productive society. Holy Souls Parish takes dinner to Our House on the 1st Tuesday and 5th Saturday of a month.
