Is your car a little dusty? A benefit car wash will offset living costs for a local missionary ready to dedicate next school year to leading retreats for high schoolers. Want to save a life? Three parishes are hosting blood drives. Know a veteran? PBS connects you with a Catholic ministry.
Benefit car wash — 8 a.m.-2 p.m. July 12 at Blackwell Automotive (northwest corner of 40th Street/Greenway Road). Proceeds will help pay living expenses for Mariah Butcher, a St. Bernadette parishioner who is dedicating a second year to leading high schoolers closer to Christ through National Evangelization Teams Ministries. Archived coverage.
If your car isn’t dirty enough yet, wait out the next monsoon and then join the car wash July 26. Same time and place.
Donate blood — various appointment times July 13. Feel free to stop by before or after Mass at:
