Food Is Needed!
We are in need of more food for all the ways in which we feed those in need in our parish and in the surrounding area. There is a Food Locker in the back of St. Joseph Church near the front doors which can be used for donations when you come to Mass. There is also a table in the front of Our Lady of Consolation Church which can be used for donations when you come to Mass. For all those who continue to help with donations, especially during the holiday season, we sincerely thank you.
The Gabriel Project is a service to provide baby clothing and equipment to new mothers who cannot afford to buy these items for their babies. If you are in need, please call the Church Office.
