*The Saint Mary’s Knight’s of Columbus and the Saint Mary’s Altar Society are honored to announce that we will be doing a benefit for Greg (Barney) Schumacher to help cover medical expenses, on January 22nd at the Stickney Community building. We will be serving pork loin sandwiches with the cheesy hash browns and baked beans with plenty of church ladies’ desserts. Please plan to attend and help support this great family.

“Operation Shoebox 2021 was a very successful outreach. We had a group of 27 that came from the United States to help us in the 10 activities. We began with the group acting out a song with the children about blowing the trumpet, calling all to celebrate our victory in the Lord. The children really got into the action of the song and then were ready to receive the message of the ‘Why of Christmas’. We ended the program with an altar call with hundreds raising hands to receive the Lord, to the glory of God! We were able to bless 4016 children with a shoebox! After the group returned to the United States, we continued on for another 10 days with Operation Shoebox working with local pastors and others that have children’s ministries. Thank you for helping to make Christmas special for all of these children.” Marion Z. Wright

In 2020 there was no outreach so the boxes that they distributed were from donations and financial help given in 2020 and 2021. Thank you to all who helped with this project in any way! Pat Vanderpol
