"Christ In Us" Serving the needs of others...
Christian Service Ministry Brochure (updated September 2023)
To honor the upcoming Holidays, St Agnes Christian Service office will be officially closed the following weeks:
***The week of November 19 => Thanksgiving
***The weeks of December 17 and December 24 => Christmas
***The week of December 31 => New Years
*Our traditional every-Tuesday office hours will be in place all the other weeks of November and December.
*During the weeks we are officially closed, the CS email will be checked several times a day and telephone messages will be checked at least 2x/weekly on an irregular schedule. Therefore, if it is a CS emergency, it would be better to email (using the email address below) than to leave a telephone voicemail.
*We will be available to fill emergency bedding orders.
Advent Giving Tree => It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Hope you have had the chance to stop by the AGT, all decked out with ’tags’ for your prayerful consideration of Livingston County Catholic Charities, Fowlerville Family Impact Center, and parish families in need. The Tree will be in the Gathering Space thru December 4. Make checks payable to St. Agnes Church and write “AGT” on the memo line. These checks are held in a separate account especially for the AGT, so you can be assured the funds will go where you intended. Thank you in advance for making this Christmas special for Livingston County Seniors and families of our parish and community!
Christmas Wonderland! Well, the weather is cooperating, putting roses in your cheeks and getting you into the seasonal shopping spirit! Check out the special table in the Gathering Space, explaining the Senior Christmas Boxes. It is run in conjunction with the LCCC Christmas Project for Livingston County seniors. This year, there are 220 box requests. Pick up a copy of shopping suggestions and think about these folks and how you can help. Senior Christmas Boxes will run through November 26.
