...feed the hungry
There are several Christian Service Opportunities to assist those in need of food.
"From the Heart" FOOD BAGS
One of these programs is sponsored by the Youth Ministry in conjunction with the Circle of Concern. The parishioners contribute canned goods and other non-perishable items monthly in bags provided by the Youth Ministry. These bags are collected and distributed to the Circle of Concern to those in need.
