Do you have a rising 9th grader or 10th grader? Registration for Confirmation preparation is now open for students in both grades. The fee for 10th grade is $150/student and includes the Life Teen registration fee. Those teens entering 9th grade only need to pay the $95 registration fee for Life Teen. Parent meetings will take place in May and cover program requirements and schedules.
Each year, our Knights of Columbus Council sponsors a spring Food for Families drive for the Community Assistance Center (CAC) in Sandy Springs. CAC routinely faces food shortages during the summer months. Children who receive free or subsidized meals at school are home for the summer and don’t have access to these meals. That’s where the CAC comes in – needy families rely on them to provide food over the summer months. This year, we will once again support CAC through monetary donations that will be used to purchase food. Funds raised will be used by CAC to purchase food items from the Atlanta Area Food Bank. Every dollar donated enables CAC to purchase up to 3 pounds of much-needed food.

Each year our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day second collections benefit Catholic Charities Atlanta. Catholic Charities has a 67-year legacy in Georgia of providing help and hope for our brothers and sisters in need. Many of the clients are members of the working poor who work long hours at several jobs to support their families. Many of these individuals are also facing a life crisis, and are alone and frightened. Catholic Charities Atlanta helps to identify their problems and provides them with the resources to put them on the path to independence.
Catholic Charities services are aimed at empowering people to utilize their strengths and resources to meet their individual and family needs. Please give generously where it truly counts. Please support Catholic Charities to provide help and create hope for individuals and families facing challenges in our community, struggling on the margins of society, and living in poverty.
