Saint Mary's Mechanicsville Guild would like to share our Christmas spirit to include The Veterans Home in Marshalltown. Our Sew Sew Group will be making lap robes to donate. The home has made some suggestions as to items to donate for our veterans: shampoo - toothpaste - candy bars - word search puzzle books - postage stamps - deodorant and individual wrapped snack items. There will be a box placed in back of the church for your generous donations. Thank you in advance for your support. Would like to receive by Dec 15th. The Guild. Sharon Boyd

We invite our parish families to purchase a Christ-mas Poinsettia in honor of their loved ones. Please include your donation with specific information in an envelope in the collection basket at our St. Mary’s Mechanicsville Masses in the next four weeks. When the Christmas decorations are stored away, you may take your poinsettia home to enjoy. Thank you for your generosity. $10 for each poinsettia
