SIRS is part of the ProQuest research database, and CultureGrams provides information about the 50 states and places in the world. BrainPOP provides academic enrichment in all subjects.

SJB's Food Drive Begins in October

SJB begins a season of service with a food drive for the St. Camillus Food Pantry. This month is our traditional Service Liturgy and food collection for St. Camillus Pantry. A flyer will be going out next week asking for food donations to support our neighbors who do not have enough to eat. We will collect the food October 15-26, and our Service Liturgy will be on October 26 at 10:45. St. Camillus has asked us to deliver the food on Thursday, November 1, around 2 pm.

In November, we collect food for nearby families in need and deliver the meals for Thanksgiving. In December, we have our Shower for Baby Jesus. If you can help as a volunteer in any of these efforts, please see the flyer and signup form.
