The Christmas Prison Package Project, started more than twenty years ago by the late Sister Karen Klimczak, S.S.J., enjoyed the support of an even larger group of volunteers this year, allowing us to finish sorting and packaging 1000 Christmas gift bags for the inmates at the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden in record time. We thank all our parishioners and the many volunteers from throughout the community who helped to continue this ministry.
