Donations toward Ham for the Community Christmas Day Dinner
The Greater Latrobe Ministerial Association is hosting the annual Community Christmas Day Dinner for people who would otherwise be alone on Christmas. Our parish has been asked to provide ham for the dinner. If you would like to donate money toward hams, put your donation in an envelope marked “Christmas Dinner Ham” and drop in the collection basket, drop off at the parish office or give online at https://basilicaparishstv.weshareonline.org/GLMACommunityChristmasDinnerHamDonation. Questions? Contact Teri Pomerleau at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-539-8629, ext. 15.
