Giving Thanks with Mystic Monk Coffee!

Dear Parents,
Let’s give thanks to God this Thanksgiving for the gifts of faith, family, and Mystic Monk Coffee. We are continuing our coffee fundraising efforts for the middle school N.E.T. Retreat and this time it is a quick sale. Our catalog is updated with the biggest selections we’ve ever been able to offer! You can shop Coffee, Teas, Monks Shots (K-cups), and Seasonal Coffees and Hot Chocolate.

Inside our updated catalog, you find all your favorite Fall and Winter flavors: Pumpkin Spice (available for Sept.-Nov.), Thanksgiving Blend (available for Oct.-Nov.), Cinnamon Coffee Cake (Nov. only), Christmas Blend (Nov.-Dec.), and Jingle Bell Java (Nov.- Dec.), Candy Cane and Jingle Java Hot Chocolate. Checks should be made out to St. Elizabeth Seton School for all orders. Our sale deadline is Friday Nov.8 so we can have your order here by Thanksgiving.

Our next order will be in late November, early December in which your favorite Christmas blends will still be available. This might be a perfect opportunity to start your gift shopping for the upcoming holidays! Spread the word around if you can.

Our middle school students thank you in advance. Not only do you support us with your purchase, but you also help the Carmelite monks who roast and brew the coffee. Supporting two in one shot…blessings from heaven!

Peace in Christ,
Mr. Ganse

Box of Joy (A ministry of Cross Catholic Outreach)

At Christmas we experience the joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and gift giving is a wonderful part of that experience. But severe poverty in developing countries deprives children of this joy. Parents are simply too poor to provide gifts. The Box of Joy ministry will allow the Seton parish and school community to send joy to the world!

Prayerfully consider if you’d like to participate in this service project and if your family would like to fill more than one Box of Joy. Thank you in advance for participating in this simple yet tangible service experience that has both a material and spiritual impact on the poorest of the poor in developing countries.
