Following is a link to the Lazarus Ministry Year in Review meeting held January 12, 2021. It highlights the first year's activities of the ministry, provides valuable background on the overall issues contributing to homelessness and precarious housing in Central Florida, and introduces two of our community partners who are helping us address this prevalent issue.
We’re at it again! Similar to our first Lazarus Ministry event last year, we will reprise our successful School “Re-supply” Drive for the children of families living in hotels on Lee Road. With your help, we will collect the necessary supplies no later than January 17, 2020.
This year, we will be distributing 300 drawstring bags to Parishioners at Masses and through St Margaret Mary Ministries after Christmas. Each bag will contain a list of the specific supplies we are asking you to put in the bags and return to the Parish Hall no later than January 17, 2021. This approach will enable us to collect and distribute the supplies with a minimal amount of contact to mitigate the risk of Covid-19 exposure. We will also be requesting volunteers for distribution as we get closer to the distribution date. More details to come!
