Feed the hungry
There is an increase in the number of people requesting housing and utility assistance. Thanks to the generosity of our parishioners we are able to help in most situations. Some, however, are beyond our means. At these times it’s increasingly important to have the food pantry as a resource. Thank you again for supporting our food pantry. Our next food collection at Mass will be during the weekend of May 20th-21st. The members of our community visiting the food pantry are extremely grateful for everything they receive. If you would like to volunteer in any capacity please contact Bob at the rectory.

We will be having a meeting this week to continue setting up the hunger center. Ideally the hunger center will welcome people from all faiths and operate as its own entity, located in the library building at the church. A kitchen is being installed and the framework for the hunger center is being sorted out. We are grateful for your support. Look for more information in next week’s bulletin including an update on when the hunger center will start, how you can participate, community involvement, and fundraising efforts. Thank you again for all you do to keep Father Dan’s vision for the community strong.
