Lenten Food Offering


In observance of the season of Lent, our St. Vincent de Paul Society is asking parishioners to consider bringing one item for the food pantry on each weekend of Lent. We are in need of canned vegetables to accompany the Easter dinner meals we will be distributing along with some personal hygiene items.

Suggestions for each weekend are:

Weekend Requested Items
Mar 14/15 Canned green beans; toothbrushes, tooth paste
Mar 22/23 Canned peas; shampoo, conditioner
Mar 29/30 Canned carrots; deodorant
Apr 4/5 Canned vegetables; toilet paper

All donations may be placed in the boxes at the doors of the church on those weekends. Donations may also be dropped off anytime during the week. When a person calls St. Mary's in need of food, two Vincentians pack up bags of food and bring them to the person. We are all working together to make a difference in our corner of the world. God Bless.
