Over the next few months there will be several opportunities that are familiar to many, but maybe not to all, for outreach to those who are in need including the diaper drive, baby bottle collection and school supply collection. This past weekend a number of people from Divine Mercy through the Knights of Columbus and Columbiettes helped at the Special Olympics held at Hamden Hall Soccer field and SCSU. Thank you to all who supported this effort.

“Bottles for Babies” drive will begin the weekend of July 7th and 8th to benefit In Our Blessed Mother’s Arms. Baby bottles will be offered to parishioners after Mass. The drive will end on Sunday, July 22nd. Please make checks payable to Divine Mercy Parish.

In August there will be the school supplies collection that supports St. Francis/St. Rose School in New Haven.
