Get on the Bus~Jr High Ministry reaches out to kids to visit their parent in prison

 The Junior High Ministry did a wonderful job of reaching out to kids who went to visit their parent in San Quentin on June 17,2016.  They packed 98 bags of four different types for the long trip, things to make the long trip more fun and more comfortable.  Thank you, Shelley, for leading the students and Nancy and Tom for helping us to set up the project.  And thank you to all parishioners who donated needed items for these bags and to the junior high students who pulled it all together.

Junior High Ministry Helps the Homeless

On November 8th 2015, the assembly of 800 Thanksgiving bags for the homeless was amazing.  Under the supervision of Edmund and Shelley the Junior High Ministry packed 500 bags as service for others.  Parishioners were invited out to the patio after the 8 and 10 Masses to pack the remaining 300.  The bags contained non-perishable food items--protein, fruit cups, dried fruit, a drink, snacks and utensils.  They were delivered to ACTION, One-Stop, Turning Point, St. John's Outreach, Catholic Charities Oxnard, Brother Joseph, Homeless Services and our own Gary and his sons brought some to distribute on Skid Row.  The project was funded by a generous grant from Ventura County Community Services.
