Mary Cardot and Joan Gehrlein sorting items collected at 
St. Jude's Parish in early January.  Personal care items, snacks, and clothing 
were collected for the men at St. Patrick's Haven and other agencies.  These 
items are given to the men at SPH to provide for their comfort and care 
especially during the cold winter season.  We are grateful to St. Jude's and 
many other groups who help provide for the needs of our guests throughout the 
year.  St. Patrick's Haven depends on these generous donations to carry out our 
mission to homeless men.

thoughtfulness of all we have supported St. Patrick's Haven in so many ways.

Thanksgiving Dinner along with many other Erie area ministries.  Support from 
the SSJ's helps with our daily operating costs as we minister to the dear 
neighbor and provide a safe, warm shelter for homeless men.
