VERNON CLERGY FUND NEEDS OUR HELP!
Immediate help is needed for area families to help with bills. We were

during this difficult time. Send all offerings to Holy Counselor and
mark in the memo “Vernon Clergy fund”. All donations will be forwarded
and deposited monthly in the Vernon Clergy Fund. Thank you in advance
for helping those in need in our area.
