This event is for all ages and parishioners. It is a wonderful opportunity to share your gifts within the community and evangelize at the same time, just by bringing together some loved ones and friends for a few hours on Saturday April 8. We can show our community what a great group of Catholics can accomplish together. Be part of our Day of Goodness for our Catholic parishes in the Eastern Greece Charlotte area.
Pick up a trifold in the pews or at the doors of church. We have many places from which to choose. Many of the sites and times can be adjusted to fit your schedules and many have restrictions on the number of people they can accommodate. It is first come first serve, so fill in the registration form and return it to Donna Jacobi, 4492 Lake Ave., Rochester NY 14612. (Be one of the first 50 registrants and receive a free t-shirt.)
Hope you will join us for this spirit -filled day and then for dinner at 6:00 PM, served by the Knights of Columbus at Our Mother of Sorrows Church. Questions? Please contact Donna Jacobi at 261-5552 or at email@example.com. Help make this day a success in our community as we show off our Catholic Spirit. God Bless!

We were blessed by over 230 people who came forward for our Annual Day of Goodness this year. Even with the cold weather we had people out raking and cleaning up grounds, sorting and folding Donations, and more at our 17 different sites throughout our community. People were entertaining and visiting some wonderful new friends.
The wonderful Knights of Columbus cooked a delicious dinner of Chicken Marsala and pasta and dessert for all our volunteers and organization leaders.
Folks who couldn’t do the actual day had the opportunity to visit two sites on their own when it was convenient. So there was something for everyone. Contacts and relationships were made that have sparked year-round involvement with these organizations. It was and continues to be a spirit-filled event and all who participated gave and received far more than could have been imagined.
We talked about our God moments of the day and they were varied and amazing. One that touched my heart was from a teen who said that each time the bells rang where they were working (which was outside) the sun came out. They felt God in it’s warmth.
Be sure to look for our bright t-shirts and join us next year. It’s something from which you’ll take many happy memories and blessings.
