Holiday Donations for the Pantry

Our Parish Pantry continues to distribute food to our needy brothers and sisters in the community every Tuesday morning because of your continued generosity and the generosity of non-parish donors. Giving food to the hungry is one great way to make the face of God visible here in our Parish. In the last 12 months, we distributed 5,788 bags including 1,163 bags for our homeless guests.

The holidays are coming up and we give each of our guests a gift from our parish in addition to the regular bag they get. Monetary donations will help our staff to shop for food and hygiene items to distribute. Your generosity in in this manner is one of the ways that has kept us going for almost 30 years. The Knights of Columbus will sponsor a Thanksgiving dinner for our guests as they had done in the past years.

There are envelopes in the pews marked with a turkey and a tree that can be used for your donations. You can drop the envelope in the collection basket or turn it in to the rectory. Non-perishable items too will help our ministry and are greatly appreciated. Your compassion for the poor and your continued generosity will surely be rewarded in heaven.

Thank you and may God bless you always!

Gratefully, the Pantry Staff
