Next Weekend: St. Vincent de Paul Second Collection
Please be generous in our St. Vincent de Paul second collection the weekend of March 25/26
Note: Please see last week’s Human Concerns Imagine that! This is the second installment
St. Vincent de Paul Conference is part of our parish Human Concerns Committee.
Are you curious about the 1,859 one-day/one-person, non-perishable Bags of Food that were given out in the last year at our Pastoral Center on Middlefield Road?
Each bag prepared by parishioners has:
Single serve bowl of cereal
Juice pouch or box of milk
Pop-top can of chili or soup
Pop-top can of tuna or chicken
Small can of vegetable juice
Two high-protein meal bars
Sleeve of crackers
Small bottle of water
Spoon and napkin
Because of your generosity, you also help people who come to the door with a grocery card for more food, and some transportation help.
People often express gratitude for your help.
Many say, “This will make a difference. Thank you very much.”
We have also received Thank you notes:
“Hi, I’m really thankful for all of your help.”
You continue to make it possible to provide emergency help with rent and to sometimes help with auto insurance or registration for people living in their cars.
