Fr. Michael Pfleger, Pastor of St. Sabina Parish, delivered a passionate homily at St. Thomas on March 2. “For every tree is known by its own fruit.” (Gospel of Luke) Fr. Pfleger challenged us to be known by our fruit. The Jobs Ministry provided an opportunity for us to bear fruit in support of St. Sabina’s Employment Resource Center (ERC).
The “Dress for Success” clothing drive was a huge success. Below is a count of the donations received.
Sport Coats/ Blazers 55
Ties (too many to count)
Dresses 52 / Blazers 30
Purses 8 /Scarves multiple
The St. Sabina Employment Resource Center does excellent work preparing youth and adults for job interviews and jobs. Often the job seekers do not have appropriate clothing to make them feel more confident in their personal appearance in front of a prospective employer. The “Dress for Success” will help resolve those problems. Thanks to all that provided donations.
