All parishes in the Diocese are asked to collect the items needed, which will be presented to a representative of the Stockley Center at Parish Life Day, November 18.

  • Art & Craft Supplies - colored paper, glue stick, washable markers and crayons, colorful foam cut-outs, ribbon, wiggle eyes, stickers, etc.
  • Card and Board Games - UNO, Skip Bo, etc. (NO plain playing cards); simple board games with not a lot of small pieces
