Food Cupboard
Our July collection will be on the weekend of July 1 & 2. And at this time, our food cupboard is in great need of the following items:
Food Needs: coffee, sugar, granola bars, instant potatoes
Non-Food Needs: toilet tissue, paper towels, adult toothbrushes, toothpaste
Thank you for all that you do, as the Food Cupboard would not exist without your dedicated support and wonderful generosity! May God bless you and your families and keep you safe this summer!

The Bereavement Ministry of MMR and St. Stanislaus
The death of someone important to you—whether it is a spouse, a parent, a sibling, a friend, or a child—is a difficult and highly emotional experience. Your grief journey can be overwhelming or even confusing at times. The Bereavement Ministry of Mary, Mother of the Redeemer, in conjunction with St. Stanislaus Parish, is here to help you, guide you, and prayerfully support you as you heal.
On the second Thursday of each month*, there is a general support group meeting offered at the two parishes. There is a morning session offered at MMR from 10 to 11:30 am, and an evening session offered at St. Stanislaus from 7 to 8:30 pm. These sessions are structured with a particular topic presented by trained facilitators, followed by group sharing and discussion. Bereaved adults are welcome to attend any or all meetings.
The next topics and dates:
July 13, 2017: The Many Faces of Loss
August 10, 2017: The Value of Memories                                                                                                                                                       September 14: Uncommon Losses, Unrecognized Grief

These groups are offered to all, parishioners and non-parishioners, Catholic and non-Catholic, with no fee and with no pre-registration necessary. If you are unable to attend the group, but are in need of support, our ministry can also offer one-to-one, compassionate listening. For contact information call Maureen Fillenwarth at the Parish Center.
