Christmas for Thiago and Rubino: It's time for our ChildFund Christmas collection. ChildFund requests St. Peter's monetary donation in October to provide gifts for Rubino in Bolivia and Thiago in Brazil. Both children are in need of new clothing and shoes, books, and groceries for themselves and their families. We cannot send packages because of gift taxes imposed by the receiving countries. Cash, coin, and checks (payable to St. Peter's Church) are appreciated. A donation box is in the narthex. Thank you!
