The Sunday School children of the younger classes took on a project for Lent at St John the Apostle Anglican Church, Clinton Township, Michigan. They gathered toys, books, crayons, Disney videos, stuffed animals and other goods for the needs of the children to make their stay at the Oscoda Emergency Homeless Shelter a more blessed experience.
The women of St John also knitted 30 pairs of slippers for the children of the shelter because of a rule that all shoes must stay at the door.
These gifts were presented to Father Thomas Anderson at the Missionary Society clericus gathering. To save gas, Fr. Tom had driven his wife Jackie's Beetle and faced the dubious of challenge of seeing just how many gifts could be stuffed into a VW Beetle. Praise God for the opportunity to be as Christ to the least of these our brothers and sisters.
