“and He took the seven loaves and the fish; and giving thanks, He broke them and started giving them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.”– Matthew 15:36
The Society is funded through the offering boxes in the church, and other direct donations. All monies collected go to those of our parish family who have fallen on difficult times and depending upon resources, size of family, and any other extenuating circumstances. We issue gift certificates to local supermarkets.
This society also operates the Parish Food Pantry, to which our parishioners donate non-perishable food. The Thanksgiving Food Drive also helps inner-city Catholic Church pantries, but only after our parish’s needs are met. Clients are known ONLY to the members of our Society.
