New Energies Parish Partnership Project
UPDATE
The St. Henry/St. Vincent Implementation Team met in May and proposed 4 areas to develop synergy between
both parishes.  The 4 areas are as follows:  combining efforts of the food pantries; combining efforts of Rosary
Society activities; organizing a combined youth program; and combining efforts of an Evening of Reflection.
We begin by uniting our efforts to share the responsibility with the St. Vincent’s Food Pantry.  We are looking
for donations of canned food products:  fruit, tuna, vegetables, potatoes, soups, spaghetti, sauces.  Cereal is also
needed.  Clients coming in to be served are increasing, so thank you in advance for any  help you can give.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY:  Our Lenten Project consisted of knitting and crocheting blankets for Camp
Valerie, which provides a fun-filled summer get-away for children with cancer.  It was an honor and privilege to
provide these warm and colorful blankets for our cherished children.  We pray they experience the love and
compassion we put into our handiwork and that God’s healing touch be experienced in them.  Many thanks to
Mary R., Pauline, Elaine D., Elaine P., Betsy, Barbara, Camille, Laura and Luisa for their continued dedication
to this ministry—YOU’RE ALL THE BEST!
We are now on our summer schedule:  Meetings are the last Sunday of the months of June July, August and
September.
