Help the People of Ukraine
Listed below is a letter posted by St. Joseph parish in Bradley in regards of helping the people in Ukraine. We are sharing this letter for anyone wanting to do something to help. ??
This is a Breaking News at our Parish! St. Joseph in Bradley is teaming with St. Rose Parish in Wilmington, St. Patrick Parish in Wilton Center and St. Andrew Parish in Romeoville to assist the Church of St. Lawrence in Ukraine. This is an awesome opportunity to send prayers, support and provisions to people in the region of Zhovkva, which is located about 20 miles from the Ukrainian-Polish border.
Fr. Wojciech Borzyszkowski, a polish priest serving at St. Lawrence Church, has reached out to Fr. Marcin and the other pastors, explaining the plight of the people. The Dominican Sisters of the parish are working tirelessly to provide meals and items to refugees fleeing from the war. They are in desperate need of more items, however, as the number of travelers keeps growing and growing and supplies are becoming limited. Please help with this effort.
-Imperishable foods, such as pasta, rice, barley, cereal, canned meat (tuna, spam or chicken)
-baby formula, diapers and wipes
-flashlights and batteries
-blankets and sleeping bags
-over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory, cold and flu medicines
-first aid supplies, such band-aids, bandages, etc.
-disposable plates, bowls, cups, and utensils
-candy and chocolate for the children
-monetary donations can also be made to assist with shipping costs and to purchase requested items; make checks payable to Helping Hands with “Ukraine” in the memo line and send to St. Joseph Parish at 211 N Center Ave, Bradley, IL, 60915. Yellow and white “Helping Hands” envelopes are in the pews for you to donate at Mass. Don’t forget to indicate “Ukraine” on the envelope and on the check.
We are working with a shipping company to assist with the delivery of the items. A fire department in Warsaw has volunteered to deliver items to St. Lawrence Church. ****Please bring items to the back of St. Joseph Church before Masses. Perhaps write “Ukraine” on the bags or items. (Doors will be open from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 8:30 a.m.-12p.m. on Sunday).
Feel free to bring items to the parish office during the week.****
Please be generous for this critical humanitarian relief effort. Thanks so much for your support and prayers!
