Donations can be dropped off before or after masses or anytime daily between 7:45am-4pm in Food Pantry bins in the Narthex.
Thank you to all who donated $10 Jewel and Walmart gift cards to the food pantry. We were able to distribute them to clients at Food Pantry this month to help contribute to Easter celebrations.
We are so grateful for the many anonymous donors we have here at St. Cletus. Each week we bring over boxes and bags worth of donations from the bins in the Church Narthex. One donor in particular, has been contributing ten $10 Jewel cards each week. THANK YOU! Everyone’s attention to detail and faithfulness to our “shopping list” is so appreciated. Please know that it does not go un-noticed!
We also want to thank students at Pleasantdale and in the St. Cletus Religious Education program for their huge food drives this week! Thanks!

Using Twitter and Social Media in Your Job Search
ICN invites you to join us on Thursday, March 15, 7-9 pm to learn more about using this powerful social media tool in your job search. With TweetMyJobs listing over one-and-a-half-million job tweets in just 30 days, there’s no question that Twitter and social media are a must-use resource for job seekers. Our speaker this evening is Falise Platt. She has worked with a wide variety of companies providing them with strategic direction in establishing their social media presence. Falise will explain why you should sign up, how to sign up and why you’ll want to incorporate Twitter and Facebook as part of your search. This meeting is open to everyone and there is no cost to attend. We look forward to welcoming you at St. John of the Cross Parish Center, 5005 South Wolf Road in Western Springs.

We encounter Andrise, a teacher in Haiti who knows the importance of forming young people who will give back to the community-and their country. Reflect on the role teachers have played in bringing you closer to God and your community. How can you support those, worldwide, who are forced to flee their homes to find safety or better opportunities?
Students of first grade of the Notre Dame de Lamerci de Robillard school, in Nord Department, Haiti, wash their hands before and after eating their meal. Some students depend on this as their only source of food during half of the day.
Catholic Relief Services in partnership with the diocesan office of the Catholic Education Commission, are implementing the program Haiti Reads. Every student receives a new workbook to practice their reading and writing. This is a big change from before, when students had to copy notes from the board. Visit crsricebowl.org for more.
