Corpus Christi Food Collection for the Poor
This year again, Bishop Serratelli has invited us to participate in a special Corpus Christi Food Collection for the Poor in all the parishes of the Diocese. Each year, the parish and diocesan food pantries operated under Catholic auspices in our three counties reach a crisis during the summer months. The summer school vacation helps fuel this crisis, adding an extra load to the already burdened food pantries.
This year we've been designated a "hot cereal" and shampoo parish. Please bring hot cereal, farina, oat meal, or shampoo to church on the Feast of Corpus Christi and deposit it in the baskets provided in the front of the church.
Part of the food collected will be kept at St. Anthony's to help stock our own food pantry, which you all so generously support.
