Holy Name, Our Lady of Sorrows and Holy Family Churches







Do you have religious articles that you want to share with others - Rosaries, prayer cards (not memorial cards), books, medals, etc?  Sometimes we find these items when a relative or friend passes away, or we receive them in the mail with mission appeals.  The Notre Dame Tabernacle Society accepts religious articles and sends them to missionary priests, in poor areas, who request them to give to their congregations.  The Tabernacle Society is also in serious need of additional volunteer sewers. New sewers will be greatly welcomed to join the ministry.  You may view our website NotreDameTabernacleSociety.org for more information about our ministry, and to learn how you might use your talents to help spread the Gospel, and allow unlimited graces to flow your way!  Please contact ndts2009@yahoo.com or call 513-708-7163 to plan a visit."
