Church of the Pilgrimage to celebrates Heifer Month

PLYMOUTH — May is Heifer month at The Church of the Pilgrimage, 8 Town Square.

The Church, since 1973, has supported the mission of Heifer International which is to end hunger and poverty while caring for the earth. Members and friends donate money so that others may purchase farm animals and training in order to start a small business. The recipients then pass the offsprings of these animals on to others so that they too may be helped.

Throughout the month of May, the church will sell Mother’s Day and Friendship Cards, buttons, stickers, books, Ark Calendars and banks. On May 20, two hens will visit the church school and be guests at the display and pledge tables.

All events are open to the public. Sunday services and church school events begin at 10 a.m. The Church of the Pilgrimage is a Protestant Congregational Church and a member of the United Church of Christ denomination. The Rev. Dr. Helen Nablo is pastor.
