Turkey Drive Surpasses Expectations
Saint Augustine Parish has once again outdone themselves with the contribution of 121 complete dinners, 8 additional turkeys, and many bags of canned goods which were donated to seven different charities: Catholic Community Services of Rockland, Marian Shrine, Good Counsel, St. Dominick's, One To One, Haverstraw Neighborhood Fund, and St. Zita's.
Our cars and vans were filled to capacity and all charity requests were filled at 100% or greater. In addition, $195.00 in cash was donated and will be used to purchase food for our December Pantry Drive to Catholic Community Services of Rockland.
Kudos go to the following people who helped make the event a success: the St. Augustine Boy Scout Troop who did all the heavy lifting, Rocco Marino, Chris Downey, and Andy Farrelly who made two deliveries to the Marian Shrine, John Bruno who made his annual run to St. Zita's, Theresa DeMatteo who made the coffee-run on a very cold day, and to Lisa Kloenne who made up at least one-half of the dinner baskets from all the items donated to the drive.
Thank you St. Augustine Parishioners !!! You are much too generous !!!
The parish would like to recognize the wonderful contribution and dedication of our youth who serve as ALTAR SERVERS. They do much more than assist the priests, carry the candles, carry the cross, receive the gifts, and set the altar at Mass. They give up their time on the weekends, sometimes very early in the morning and at times very late at night, to serve the parish community. Altar servers are also prayer leaders and role models for all the children in the parish. Their service is commendable and a big contribution to our beautiful liturgies and church celebrations. All boys and girls beginning in the 4th grade are encouraged to participate. Training sessions are held twice a year.
