The council will hold its annual Baby Bottle Campaign at OLV church to benefit the Gabriel Project.  We plan to distribute bottles in the back of the church and outside of the main doors after the Masses on May 12th-13th (Mother’s Day) and 19th-20th.   We need volunteers at the end of each Mass on both weekends. Please consider volunteering. Please email Jason indicating the time you are willing to volunteer (jasonfoytack@gmail.com,). This is a great opportunity to participate in an activity to support a worthy cause. You will be at Mass anyway and the time commitment is only about 10-15 minutes.
