The meeting location for the February 4 St. Vincent De Paul meeting will be in the Commons, instead of the Bishop Gerber room.  Please stop by if you are interested! We meet after the 9 a.m. Mass.

Here is a recent thank you note received by our Blessed Sacrament Society of St. Vincent De Paul from an anonymous client: “To whom it may concern, I would like to thank the Church of the Blessed Sacrament and {names of two Blessed Sacrament home visitors} for all their help this past Christmas season!  Without you all I would have lost my home and my two little girls.....Thank you again so much! And God Bless!”  Thanks to our many benefactors, who allow Blessed Sacrament to be able to help those who contact our Church with a financial crisis.

Thanks to everyone who donated food, or helped prepare a hot breakfast for the clients at the St. Anthony Family Shelter on January 27. The young daughter of one of the volunteers brought a bag full of stickers that she passed out to the children staying at the shelter, and brightened their day.

The Blessed Sacrament Knights of Columbus are holding their annual 40 Cans For Lent food drive again this year each weekend during Lent.  The purpose of the drive is to collect non-perishable food items, to be donated to Holy Savior Parish’s God’s Food Pantry.  For many poor people, food pantries are a way to supplement very limited income.  Details on the food drive to follow!

 

Just a reminder but we can always use volunteers (and trucks) to help us move furniture to clients in need.  Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
