Students collecting craft items to make gifts for Hope Totes

Students attending Igniting the Fire, a lock-in at St. Matthias Roman Catholic Church in Crown Point, will make prayer boxes, tic-tac-toe bags and Rosaries for Hope Center in September. Items will be put in Hope Totes for those facing cancer. (The totes include handmade fleece blankets, a bible, a Hope Center travel cup, a port pillow, lip balm, lotions, handmade cards and more.)

If you would like to order supplies to help with their efforts, they can be directly shipped to Rochelle Metivier McNamara at Holy Spirit Catholic Church at 7667 East 109th Avenue in Winfield/Crown Point, IN 46307 by Wednesday, September 11th. Of course, you can also drop them off at the Holy Spirit Faith Formation office in person, if you would prefer. Contact Rochelle at
