It's time again to collect for the FOOD and FUEL program!
Place any donations you have in the baskets at the church exits through Sunday August 1. Reminder too, any monetary donations can be put in the rectory mail slot in an envelop marked Food For Life.
The donations this month will be delivered to the food pantry at the Rural Parish Workers complex in Cadet, Missouri.
This not for profit organization has been run by a few very dedicated women for now well over 50 years. They've received support from the Archdiocese of St. Louis and provide a wide range of services to those in need in this rural area. We at St. Gabriel have helped with our food donations for many, many years.
We have the baskets out at the exits. The church is open throughout the day and evening. Perhaps while there you can say an extra prayer for all those effected adversely by this pandemic. We know that the poor are particularly vulnerable and their needs remain great.
Thank you as always for your profound generosity for all those who are in need.
