St. Bonaventure Ministry Fair
May 20, 2018
Are you Interested in finding out more of what the Justice and Peace Ministry is all about? Here is your chance to talk to people face to face about what we do and what we support. Representatives will be in the Hall from 8:30am to 1:00pm. Hope to see you!
Mother and Child Shower
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Mother and Child baby shower. These local non-profit Orange County organizations provide food, shelter, and support for homeless pregnant women, and training so they can build a better future for themselves and their children. Parishioners of St. Bonaventure...you are the best!
Help Build a Habitat for Humanity Home
A “Catholic Coalition” of parishes in the Orange Diocese is going to partner with Habitat for Humanity to build a home for a homeless veteran family in Tustin. Work will start soon, and the home will take about a year to construct. Saint Bonaventure is going to pick a day or two to provide volunteers, and you are invited to join us. It should be fun to spend a day working together while at the same time helping a needy family get into a home.
You don’t have to have construction skills to work on the site (the Habitat team provides training and supervision), but you do have to be willing to work 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM on the day we pick (with your input). Volunteers must sign a waiver and must be 18 to work unsupervised. Teens 16-18 can work if a guardian is on site, who can supervise multiple teens. Younger kids can be part of a family “lunch bunch” crew bringing lunch for the workers, which is really helpful. Families can also sign up to build playhouses off-site.
