December 2 was a beautiful day to rake leaves for our senior citizens. We visited five houses in three hours and filled 61 bags of leaves. We will be visiting our elderly neighbors again in January for more yard work. Watch for details.
We are sending ten eighth graders, three high school students, and five chaperones to the March for Life in Washington DC in January. Our group is selling bags of fundraising popcorn to help pay for the trip. We will deliver through school, PSR, to your home, or arrange pick up after mass.
So much gratitude and hope filled the halls at FOCUS Sunday Supper this Labor Day weekend. Our next date for this service project is Sunday December 10. Mark your calendars!

The Crew raked leaves at five houses in our neighborhood in three hours. The senior citizens we helped out appreciated our assistance and enjoyed talking to us.

Seven 8th graders, six high school students, and five adults represented St. Justin at the March for Life to show that we believe all human life is sacred from conception to natural death.
