St. Stephen's Steps Up Again!
Two weeks ago, in I invited you to contribute to the healing and rebuilding after the devastating Camp Fire in Butte County. You responded to the needs of our sisters and brothers at St. Nicholas Paradise and St. John’s Chico, by purchasing or contributing to the purchase of gift cards. Because of your generosity, we are able to send $2,265 worth of gift cards to St. John’s to be distributed immediately to those in need. This is in addition to the $500 we sent from our Mercy and Justice funds last week. I continue to be in awe and gratitude for your ready and loving response.
