Thanksgiving Food Drive

“You pray for the hungry. Then you feed them. That’s how prayer works.” -Pope Francis

Our St. Vincent de Paul Ministry, with the support of the Knights of Columbus, will be collecting canned goods for the needy in our community. Grocery bags, along with a list of needed items, will be distributed on the weekend of November 3-4 and the drive will run through the weekend of November 24-25. You may place donations in the wooden collection bin in the church hallway or you may bring your donations to the Thanksgiving Day Mass on November 22 and present them at the offertory. Your generosity helps less fortunate families in our community have a special holiday season. Below is a list of suggested items.
