Special Collection- Lenten Dinners

We will have a special collection next weekend, Feb. 15th / 16th for our parish Lenten dinners.  This will be used to offset the inital cost of supplies.  Please be generous in your support.

More information to come. See the Calendar for Lenten Dinner dates.

SOCIAL OUTREACH CYO FOOD DRIVE

During the months of November and December, our youth we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the St. Martin de Porres Society.  The need for such items is particularly acute during the holiday season.  The youth will be making Thanksgiving Bags and Christmas Bags and are requesting the following items:  rice, stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, sweet potatoes, canned fruit, chicken broth, turkey gravy, macaroni and cheese, jiffy corn bread mix and dessert.  Please begin to bring your donations and place them in the collection box in the back of the church.  Thank you for your continued generosity!  If you would like to make a monetary donation for perishable food that will be purchased, please call the office.

FEEDING GOD’S PEOPLE

On Saturday, October 26th, from 11 am to 1 pm, Our Mother of Sorrows and Blessed Seelos will be serving meals to people in need in our neighborhood. We will be setting up in Our Mother of Sorrows’ School parking lot. If you would like to volunteer for this community outreach ministry, please call the office or call Johnnie Smith at 228-324-4946.
