Operation Christmas Child
Attention Parish Families:
The Assumption School 3rd graders are at it again! They’re on mission to pack shoe boxes and make disciples of Jesus Christ! Assumption students are once again collecting donations and packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child whose mission is to provide children around the world with shoeboxes filled with gifts as a means of reaching children with the good news of the gospel. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S. Last year, Assumption students packed 294 shoeboxes! This year, all Assumption students are pitching in to pack 200 shoe boxes by November 12th - but we still have a long way to go to reach that goal! What goes into these shoeboxes? School supplies, clothing, hygiene products, toys… all kinds of everyday items that children around the world may not have access to. The items in these shoeboxes are sometimes the only gifts these children have ever received. The gifts and personal letters inside each shoebox communicate to the child that someone cares for them. It gives each child an opportunity to experience the love of God and the good news of the gospel. In addition to items that will fill those shoeboxes, we are also collecting
monetary donations to help us ship the boxes. Shipping each box costs $9.00. Donations will be accepted through November 12th, after which the boxes will need to be delivered for shipment. Donations can be dropped off at the parish office. We are very excited to be a part of such a life-changing ministry and are asking for your help to make this effort a success. Thanks so much for all your help! You are helping us make a difference in the lives of children all around the world! Help us do as Jesus commanded - to go and make disciples of all nations! Thank you for your generosity! God bless you! Assumption 3rd Grade Class

To whom it may concern:
As you may or may not know, the above-referenced entities (collectively, the "Crosiers") have filed Chapter 11 reorganization case. On August 25, 2017, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota entered an important Order in the reorganization cases of the Crosiers.
The Order requires persons holding claims for compensation against the Crosiers to submit such claims by December 15, 2017. You are receiving this letter because one or more persons associated with the Crosiers against whom there is a credible claim for sexual abuse served at one time in your Diocese/Parish/Mission/School. The information in the enclosed Posted Notice explains the requirement to submit claims.
I am writing to ask that you assist me, and any people who worship and live in and around your community who may have claims against the Crosiers, by posting the enclosed Posted Notice on any public notice or message board for continuous display from the time of receipt until December 15, 2017. Additionally, or alternatively, I ask that you place the Posted Notice on the website of your Diocese/Parish/Mission/School from the time of receipt until December 15, 2017. Any and all efforts to assist in getting notice to the broadest number of people possible will be greatly appreciated.
If you need additional copies or a digital file of the Posted Notice, please contact me. Thank you for your kind assistance.
