(EAST GREENWICH)-Saturday, November 10, the Our Lady of Mercy Youth Group and Confirmation class took the daunting task of raking leaves in the community. Our homebound parishioners were the focus of our efforts and the entire group was excited to participate and offer a helping hand. Those who partook in Saturday’s event gave up their Saturday morning knowing it was for a great cause. The OLM Youth Group and Confirmation class were not the only ones who helped the home bound parishioners.
A few Knights of Columbus, teachers, and parents, under the guide of Father Shemek, also helped in Saturday’s event. The parishioners seemed overjoyed with the amount of support that the OLM Church provided. Overall, it was a rewarding experience for all of those who partook in the activity, made new friends, and helped the community.
