We will also need volunteers to sort and pack the baskets for distribution on March 25th. If you are an adult or teen who would like to help on March 23rd or 24th, please contact Carol Mayfield, email@example.com.
‘I Hunger for Mercy’ Food-Packing Event on March 21st
The House of Mercy is bringing its I Hunger for Mercy program to Saint Mary’s on March 21st,
from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, in Farrell Hall. We will form assembly lines of 10 persons to pack nutritious meals of rice, soy protein and vegetables to be delivered to malnourished children and families. No experience is needed; there will be a short instructional video at 10am. This will be an excellent activity for families!

Christmas Outreach Program
Many thanks to all who supported our Christmas food and gift program which enabled over 760 needy children and adults in our community to receive gifts and food from our parishioners. This wonderful work could not have been accomplished without the many dedicated volunteers who organized, collected and sorted hundreds of gifts and distributed 1.5 tons of food during December.
Hypothermia Prevention Shelter
Great thanks to all who supported our recent hypothermia prevention shelter. Because of your generous efforts, our shelter guests enjoyed a peaceful week at our parish, with lots of delicious food and good company.
