My congratulations to parishioners at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lynden. Through their generosity, social action ministers were able to provide 142 fully loaded backpacks to the elementary schools in the Lynden, Nooksack and Sumas school districts.
Lists of items provided by the schools were used to fill the backpacks.
It is quite costly for many families to provide backpacks filled with the required items.
This parish proved to be up to the task.
They were truly about Christ's work this summer.
