Our donation this month will be delivered to the food pantry at MAT Social Ministry at St. Alphonsus Rock Church on North Grand. This food pantry helps serve our sister parish St. Matthew as well. Winter months are always hard on the poor so we ask for your partuicular generosity at this time of need. Lent gives us a time of fasting and perhaps a time to forgo some of the excess of food that we might have and instead pass it along to those in need. Thank you.
Baskets will be in place on the altar at the Masses. Yellow bags are handed out each month to assist and remind folks to save up their donations and bring them to church on the first weekend of the month.
Suggestions of healthy food items and things most needed are written on the bags. However, it is okay to bring whatever you have available and to use any bags you have. All donations are welcome.
If you don’t have anything to spare or prefer monetary donations, they can be placed in the small baskets in front at the altar as well. Half of these moneys are distributed to the designated food pantry and half to our own St. Vincent DePaul Society helping folks in our immediate area. So, thank you for your donations in whatever form they come.
