Weekly Announcements

ST. CYPRIAN BLOOD DRIVE
Every day blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.  Donations decline between Thanksgiving thru New Year's so we need donors in the first part of the new year to help ensure the blood supply remains stable for patient's in need.  Please consider donating blood here at St. Cyprian on Jan 30 from 1:30 – 6:30 p.m.
