SUNDAY, April 18 from 9:15am to 12:15pm.

Dear Parishioners,

Catholic Charities has sent the parishioners and friends of Holy Faith a debt of gratitude as we had reached our goal of giving in March 2021 once again with just about 1000 lbs of food donated, the highest amount per pound donated since we began the third Sunday of the month extra appeal, back in September 2020, to refill the shelves that deplete before the end of every month. Let’s continue to meet this goal as it is so needed at this time of the month. Thank you, thank you. God Bless you in abundance as you bless others.

Holy Faith has teamed up with Catholic Charities to help fill the food pantry shelves every third Sunday of every month. This is a time when the supply dwindles and there’s not always enough for all in need. Although donations are accepted all month long, this is an extra push to keep the food shelves well stocked. Holy Faith has always supported the work of Catholic Charities doing what our church envisions: “to build together a Community of Compassion in Christ”. Thank you for your loving and giving hearts. May God bless you always.

We had a wonderful response to our first 3rd Sunday Catholic Charities Food Drive on September 19-20 with over 1000lbs of food donated! Let’s make this our monthly goal. Catholic Charities is so grateful for the support of our community. We continue to support the pantry of Catholic Charities weekly, as always, by placing donations in the big box in the vestibule of the church, but mark your calendars specifically for the 3rd Sunday of every month (next drive: April 17-18, 2021). This is our extra outreach food drive Sunday with the goal of keeping the shelves full for the end of the month, when the supplies seem to dwindle but the need remains. May God Bless you in abundance as you Bless others.  Thank you again!

 

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed …

2 Corinthians 9:6-8
