November 12/13: Parish Food Drive

PARISH FOOD PANTRY COLLECTION at all of the weekend Masses of November 12/13, 2022!

On Saturday and Sunday, November 12 & 13, 2022, we ask you to  consider bringing one or more food items for area food pantries. Your food items may be placed in the boxes as you enter the main entrance of Church, to the right of the Statue  of Mary.

We also accept Gift Card donations for local grocery stores in amounts of $5 thru $50. The gift cards may be placed in the envelope posted on the window near the food pantry box in the entry of the  Church.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Thanks to everyone for Caring and Sharing!

Jan. 4, 9:30 am – Food Pantry Ministry Meeting

A meeting will be held on Sunday, January 4 at 9:30 am in the Parish Hall for all current volunteers and any new volunteers interested in helping with the food pantry deliveries.

Due to the increasing need, we have begun to expand the food pantry ministry to include two other local food pantries.  This will affect the delivery schedule we currently have.   Also, we want to discuss the possibility of doing a food drive in March to re-fill the food pantries after holiday supplies have been depleted.  Questions may be addressed to Jeanne Gracon or Mary Anne Cureau in the parish office at 371-9632.
