As you prepare for Easter, remember the 40 days and nights that Christ spent in the desert without food or water, praying and preparing for His sacrifice on behalf of all mankind. Your small sacrifice can make a big difference in the lives of others. Proceeds will benefit both our food pantry and other local pantries. Place items at the designated space in the Activity Center or bring them to the parish office M-Th 8am-3pm SOME CONSIDERATIONS: Cans with pull-tops are preferred (if regular cans, please also supply a can opener). We have plenty of canned vegetables at this time. Please check expiration dates. 6 months ahead or more is appreciated. Homeless do not always have a heat source so pre-cooked items are a great option.
