St. Pascal Baylon parish members have many opportunities to help make the world a better place. Service projects coordinated for parishioners include feeding and clothing the poor, and scheduling semi-annual visits of the Red Cross Bloodmobile to the parish. Our Social Justice & Caring Committee also keeps parishioners informed of current social justice issues and activities. They work both independently and collectively with other churches to address the needs of those who are unable to care or speak for themselves. Three times a year, the SJCC organizes the We Care Campaign, an outreach program to allow parishioners to learn about and contribute to carefully selected charitable organizations.
For more information about St. Pascal's Social Justice and Caring Committee, please email Kim Roering or call her at 651.774.1585 ext. 128.

Looking Ahead: December Donations
We will be collecting for both the Catholic Charities Giving Tree and Angel Tree.
Catholic Charities Giving Tree ensures that children and adults have access to essentials such as clothing, housewares, and self-care items. Folded flyers with a list of needed items will be on a Christmas Tree in the Gathering Space beginning the weekend of November 25. Take a flyer, purchase your gift(s), and then place the UNWRAPPED gift(s) in the bin located in the Gathering Space by Monday, December 25.
Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, provides Christmas gifts to children on behalf of an incarcerated parent. This year St. Pascal’s will provide gifts to 18 children. Angel Tree tags listing suggested gift items will be placed on the Giving Tree in the Gathering Space. Take a tag, purchase a gift, wrap it, and then place it in the Angel Tree box in the Gathering Space. Angel Tree gifts are to be WRAPPED and returned to the parish by Sunday, December 17 with the tag attached to ensure the gifts get to the children by Christmas.
