Christmas Food Donations

Do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Hebrews 13:16

It’s time again to prepare for our Christmas Holiday Food Boxes, and we graciously ask for your help. The following list covers our needs. The DEADLINE DATE for receiving contributions is Thursday, December 15, which allows time for purchasing perishable items and packing the boxes for distribution to families on the recipient list.  Your spirit of giving is greatly appreciated.

MONETARY DONATIONS may be left at the Parish Office or the Parish Drop Box located in the vestibule near the Adoration Chapel entrance or online.
