Dear Sacred Heart and St. Mary’s,
We have many teachers among both of our parishes. On Friday, November 1st the Hudson area churches delivered lunches to the teachers and administrators at the public schools and Sacred Heart school to support and thank our teachers for their service.
I have attached a publicity piece for the upcoming Prayer and Blessing for our schools. Members of our congregation are invited to attend the Prayer and Blessing at Our Savior Lutheran Church on Monday, November 4 at 5:00pm.
“The Hudson area churches will provide lunch for the staff at Lincoln Elementary, High school and Middle School and Sacred Heart School on Friday, November 1st. It was decided to provide the lunch as our way of showing appreciation for the commitment they have made to the children and families of the Hudson community and that we are also praying for them and the work they do. 125 box lunches from Subway will be purchased and delivered to the schools. We also hope to include a message in each box lunch to make the teachers and staff aware of who is providing the lunches and also an invitation to attend the prayer and blessing time on Nov. 4.
Our Saviour Lutheran is providing some funding for the lunches and the Ministerial Association will cover the balance. This is an opportunity to broaden their understanding of what they are doing to reach out into the Hudson community with the love of Christ and the work the ministerial association seeks to do to assist the hungry, homeless and hurting people in our community. I would also not hesitate to give them the opportunity to help finance the purchase of the lunches. Each of our congregations have individuals who like the chance to give to a special need. Letting them know of this outreach event may move them to give a special gift to the ministerial association. Any donations received can be directly sent to the ministerial association.”
