Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Count your blessings, not your crosses; count your gains instead of losses.
Count your joys instead of woes; count your friends instead of foes.
Count your smiles instead of tears; count your courage, not your fears.
Count full years instead lean; Count kind deeds instead of mean.
Count your health instead of wealth; Love your neighbor as yourself.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

Ms. Hodapp and Brother Ryan
We will have an information meeting today. The meeting will be from 3:15 PM to 3:45 PM in Room A206. On future Fridays, we will plan to spend our time riding to new places, exploring new destinations, learning about bike safety, and improving our bike maintenance skills.
Leaves do fall. Improve your health while helping a senior citizen remain independent in their home! You choose the date and time to rake and clean up the yard. Perfect for individuals, groups, and families. Seasonal: starting mid-October (depending upon the weather). This is a one-time fun unpaid activity available weekdays and weekends. Feel free to sign up multiple times!
Elders are located in Minneapolis and suburban Hennepin County, raking depends upon where the senior citizen resides. Ongoing unpaid volunteer opportunities are also available. Please contact the Household & Outside Maintenance for Elderly (HOME) Program’s Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com or call 952-767-7894 for more information.
The HOME Program number is 952-746-4046 or firstname.lastname@example.org , if a senior age 60+ needs raking or other services in Hennepin County. Senior Community Services is a nonprofit organization with five programs serving elders and caregivers statewide. For more information please visit www.seniorcommunity.org or call 952-541-1019.
