In the Month of April, our Parish Outreach Ministry reached 567 individuals in need! 119 under age 18 and 320 between the ages of 19 and 64, along with 128 over 65! The Parish Outreach Ministry gave out 524 bags of food from our Food Pantry. Congratulations and THANK YOU, Parish Outreach Ministry!
The Parish Outreach Ministry consists of a dedicated group of parishioners who respond to the needs of others compassionately and professionally. We bring people who are in need of assistance together with people who are trained to help them. The Parish Outreach Ministry empowers those in need to help themselves. This program offers our Parish Community a way to respond to those among us who may be hurting financially and/or physically. If this minitry interests you, please contact Matt Egan, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information on how you can help.
On Saturday, May 12, 2018, Saint Francis of Assisi Parish hosted the annual National Association of Letter Carriers "Stamp Out Hunger" Postal Food Drive. With the help of over 75 volunteers, the United States Postal Service, and the Knights of Columbus, we at Saint Francis of Assisi Parish took in over 13,000 pounds of donated food. This food is a blessing to our Parish Outreach Food Pantry, filling the shelves for the summer months.
Thank you to our Volunteers, the United States Postal Service and Knights of Columbus!
God Bless Us,
Father Richard York, your Pastor
