WOMEN’S RESPITE PROGRAM….Can you volunteer some of your time? Volunteers are needed to help set-up, transport, serve meals, bake cookies, or clean-up for the Women’s Respite Program to be held at the St. Theresa’s Shrine from Tuesday, July 14, through Saturday, July 18. Any time that you can give throughout the day or evening is needed. The Women’s Respite Program is sponsored through the St. Stephen’s Community Center. The purpose of the program is to invite women to come together in a safe place for a mini-vacation. Through the hospitality and efforts of volunteers, each woman can have time to herself or with others and experience creativity and spirituality that they cannot always enjoy in their everyday lives. If you want to help or need more information, please contact Debbie Pecinovsky at 868-8208 or at email@example.com .
