Food Pantry and New Day Outreach “…I assure you, as often as you did it for one of my least brothers, you did it for me.” Matthew 26:40 On the last full weekend of each month, we have an opportunity to respond to Jesus’ call for us to help those in need. Next weekend, November 28 & 29, is our Food Pantry and New Day Outreach weekend.
This month our donations will go to the People First Food Pantry in Uxbridge. Please purchase an extra item or two when you do your shopping this week and bring them to church next weekend. Just a note: Food pantries are not allowed to distribute any food items that have expired; they have to throw them away. Please check expiration dates carefully if you bring an item from your home!!
Monies received in the Good Shepherd Church replica on the last full weekend of each month are used to help individuals and families from our parish, and also to support various community causes. Your generosity
On Wednesday evening at 7 PM, we will gather as a parish family to give thanks to God for the many blessings in our lives. Please join us and begin your holiday gathering with prayer.
