Many parishes have expressed a willingness to donate hymnals, music, and various other items to assist parishes in need. This page is provided to help them to make connections with communities in need of their assistance.

Please include the name of a contact person along with e-mail address, phone number, and the name and city of the parish.

We will post these messages along with the e-mail address of the sender, so that parishes in need can make contact with individuals and parishes that would like to assist them. All postings will be removed after four months; they may be re-posted by request.
