BLESSED SACRAMENT NEWS/EVENTS
CAUTION from Fr. Yagaza, Please Read!
A number of our parishioners have been receiving e-mail or text messages (sms) with my name letting them know that I am at the meeting and requesting them to buy music cards from Amazon for my patients. I want to inform all the public that I have never made such a request and I will not make such a request. Some con people are trying to misuse my name for their gain. Kindly when you receive such messages, ignore them.

Parish Outreach and Food Pantry Christmas
As the Christmas season comes closer our Outreach program, once again, is asking parishioners to donate $10 Walmart gift cards only! After much consideration, we have decided to only ask for gift cards to Walmart because it is close by and offers a variety of merchandise for our clients. We appreciate and want to THANK YOU ahead of time for your consideration in helping us provide our clients with a little something for the Christmas season. You are welcome to drop off the gift cards in the collection basket or to the rectory until 12/6/21. If you have any questions, please call the Rectory, 315-437-3394. Thank you again for all your support.
