St. Francis of Assis Manitowoc WI

Be the Change Service Day - Sun. Nov. 11th 2018

St. Francis of Assisi Parish invites YOU to “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” by joining us for:

Be the Change Service Day - Sunday, November 11th, 2018 

3:00pm - Report directly to Service Sites

5:30pm - Wrap up service / depart Service Sites (responsible for own rides)

5:45pm - Dinner at Waldo (**PLEASE make sure to RSVP**)

6:30pm - Mass at Waldo available

Let us remember the words of Jesus who reminds us that “Whatsoever we do for the least of these, you do for me.” – Mt 25:40

Our faith calls us to not only believe and worship, but to SERVE each other in love, especially those in great need.  Our community has many needs and we want to engage as many people as possible to BE THE CHANGE by giving of their time, modeling service with their families, helping at the job sites we have lined up or reaching out to a neighbor or someone in your own life that could use your assistance.  It is our ardent hope that this day of service will be a springboard to mobilize greater numbers of people to engage in more regular service within our community.  Life is busy and full of distractions – we are hoping that this opportunity will give us a chance to remember the importance of being available to give of ourselves to those we may not even know.

A wide variety of service opportunities are available at sites around the city.  Whatever age or ability you are, there is a way for YOU to help!  We specifically designed some jobs for families to be able to involve their children so that we can TEACH how important it is to serve the community.

Please explore our service opportunities and SIGN UP today!

If you would like to be a part of the support team for this special event, or would like more information, please contact Dianne Vadney at [email protected].

Together we CAN be the change!!!

Date: 11/11/2018 (Sun.)

Time: 3:00pm - 5:30pm CST
