Ladies Sponsor Blessing Bag Lenten Project

News Image

The Ladies Auxiliary of the Knights of Columbus is sponsoring a Blessing Bag Project for Lent.

Some of you may ask, "What is a Blessing Bag?" A Blessing Bag is a gallon size ziploc bag filled with a bottle of water, snacks, a pair of socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, sanitizer, tissue, comb or brush, wet wipes, etc., and a prayer card. The intent is for the Ladies to maintain these bags in the car to be given out when approached by a homeless person on the road. Once we have collected the necessary items to assemble these bags, they will be available for whomever would like to participate in distributing them.

The Auxiliary will have a box in the Narthex labeled "Blessing Bag Items". We invite you to bring any of the following items and place them in this box to be used for our Lenten project.

  • Gallon size Ziploc bags
  • Toothbrushes
  • 8oz bottles of water
  • Toothpaste
  • Pocket size hand sanitizer
  • Bars of soap
  • Small paks of wet wipes
  • Shampoo
  • Conditionerc
  • Washcloths
  • Combs
  • Brushes
  • Travel size first aid kit or band-aids
  • Socks (mens or womens)
