FOOD FOR THE POOR
This project has been conducted in our parish for many years. Every family in the parish, whether of one person or many, is invited to purchase enough food to feed a family of their same size for an entire day. The food is brought to the Community Center on Holy Thursday and it is packed up & distributed on Good Friday.  Perishable items are included: meats, fish, eggs, dairy products, bakery products, fresh fruits & veggies, etc. Please no small freezer items as they thaw too quickly: such as fruits, vegetables and juices.
 
We serve anywhere from 150 to 250 families each year. Refuge Services, MSU Safe Place, RAVE, CADA Eve's House, CADA Advocacy, Loaves/Fishes Shelter, Luke House, Zacchaeus House, Advent House, St. Therese Food Bank.
 
VOLUNTEERS are NEEDED:
¨ Help picking up bulk goods Holy Thursday and Good Friday in the very EARLY morning.
¨ Many hands are needed to help with the job of packing up the food begins after Morning Prayer Service at 8:30AM on Good Friday & we are usually finished between 10 and 11 a.m.
¨ After the packing is done help is needed to deliver to the various agencies and/or families. Pickups, vans or SUV's needed..

 Please sign up in the gathering space at the Parish Information Center.
 
Experience what community is, what joy is, what teamwork is! 
Join us for this incredible morning to lend a hand,
 and in return leave with a renewed sense of purpose.  
                                       You won’t regret it!

A vision of Heaven
As Dale McKay was facing death, he spoke to writer Nancy Schertzing about his feelings and his hopes for heaven. Later, Nancy spoke with Dale's widow, Ellen, who shared the joy of their marriage and the moving experience of Dale's death. Their story is filled with love and hope that speaks to all of us.
