HELPING HANDS 

Thank you so much for your continuing support in donating food to the pantry. We would not have been as successful in our mission without your generosity. Toiletry samples and products are always in need. The food is distributed to individual families. We are always in need of cereals, peanut butter, canned items, rice, noodles, tuna, soups etc. Our mission is to help out our fellow parishioners in their time of need. 

If you are aware of someone in need, please call Pattie (Secretary) at the rectory or speak to one of our priests. We will prepare and pack up boxes for you to pick up through the rectory. We respect your privacy and all requests will be processed through the rectory.
