The Lazarus Ministry

Next Lazarus Event

We will be holding our annual Spring Cleaning Drive delivering personal hygiene and cleaning supplies to the hotels on February 10, 2022.  Like last year, we plan to distribute storage tubs on the weekend of February 22 in which generous Parishioners can collect their donated items and deliver to the Parish prior to February 5.  More details to come. Signup to help below.
