Father Dan has rescued two cats in the
last few weeks. He called a friend, Carol Coffee, who is a volunteer for the Valley Cat Rescue organization. He found that she has 40 cats waiting for adoption in her heated garage and is in need of cat food, cat litter, and old towels and blankets to use as
bedding. Father Dan is asking for help from the parishioners and the community
for support in helping this local non-profit organization care for these helpless animals. Donations
can be dropped at the Church on Sunday morning or by calling Janeann at 570-868-6895 to schedule
