Thanks VERY much to the Blessed Sacrament Men’s Club for their amazing generosity in support of our Blessed Sacrament St. Vincent de Paul Conference! The Men’s Club is currently providing $200 per month to SVdP, which will be a huge boost in the arm, allowing us to provide rent and utility assistance, food for homeless meals, etc. throughout the year, for those in need. The Men’s Club also sponsored SVdP’s annual Christmas meal deliveries to those less fortunate in 2017 with a $1,500 donation. God bless the Blessed Sacrament Men’s Club!
The “40 Cans for Lent Food Drive” starts this weekend! Sponsored by the Blessed Sacrament Knights of Columbus, the goal is to receive donations of 4000 pounds of non-perishable food. The food will be donated to God’s Food Pantry. Joanne Batiste, from the Pantry asked that if asked, their current specific needs are small boxes of cereal (12 oz. if possible), pop tarts, canned protein like tuna, Spaghetti-o’s, or stew, crackers and canned fruit. But anything will be accepted and GREATLY appreciated.
Father Jirak and our Priests generously designated a portion of the collection from Ash Wednesday Masses to go to our Blessed Sacrament Society of St. Vincent de Paul, to help the poor; thank you! And thanks to the volunteers who served as ushers for the three Masses.
