A Note from Our Deacon: 

Many thanks to everyone for your generous and swift response to my request for blankets for the homeless folks we help at the St. Francis Closet (or I should say, “Room”) in the Mustard Seed & Book Nook. We are now well supplied with many warm, soft blankets. We also have plenty of socks, hats, and scarves.

We are now in need of warm gloves, even mittens and disposable hand warmers. Lately I have seen the adverse effects of cold weather on the hands of people who have to live outside all day; it can quite unsettling. But we can help.


Old or extra pairs of ski gloves, glove liners, dollar store “one size fits all” gloves, mittens

Disposable hand warmer 2-packs; they give about 10 hours of heat.

If you receive a gift card for Christmas, use part of it to buy a pair of gloves for the homeless.

Where to bring them:

The Mustard Seed/Book Nook, Dn. Kathleen’s office (near the kitchen),  the William Temple blue barrel (I will check it). You can even give it to me in person at any time.

God bless you all!

Deacon Kathleen
