After this weekend, there are only three weeks left to support the “40 Cans” food drive. Last week, an amazing 692 pounds of food were donated. So we are now at 1258 pounds towards the goal of 4000! The drive runs through Palm Sunday. If you wonder why the food drive is needed, please consider going by a food bank on the day the food is distributed and you will see a line of people hoping for extra food for their families. The drive is sponsored by our Blessed Sacrament Knights of Columbus.
Thank you to the Blessed Sacrament Altar Society who hosted last Sunday’s homeless luncheon. One of our guests whom we see each month at the luncheon commented, “Y’all always do the best food of the month…always!” It was great to have a number of young parishioners helping serve the food- the Mitnaul, Scott, Hong, and Fulghum children all helped along with their parents.
