New Ministry Forming: The Book Shelf Ministry
OLQP encourages families, friends, ministries and circles to adopt a mailbox which will be posted outside of a facility that serves or houses children in need. The decorative mailboxes will be stocked with children's books, with the intention of making reading material available at any time. Volunteers are asked to check their adopted box periodically and stock with additional books as needed (books will be collected from the community and stored in a central location for volunteer pick up). The first mailbox will be placed outside of Fr. Ray Hall to serve the children visiting our Food Pantry. Others will be placed at similar locations around Arlington and Alexandria. A meeting of this new ministry is scheduled for Monday, February 9th at 7:00pm in MC classroom 1. Please contact Katie at Kremedios@OLQPVA.org for more
