RICE BOWL – NOW AVAILABLE AT ENTRANCES OF CHURCH
Rice Bowls are available at the entrances of the Church for your Lenten sacrifices. Make a little sacrifice - skip a candy, or a chocolate bar, or maybe a movie and make your contributions to the poor. It will be a sacrifice that God will surely appreciate. Make it a point to give at least 10 cents a day and it will add up to a considerable amount. Keep this box in a prominent place in your room so that you are constantly reminded of the sacrifices you are to make and for whom. These boxes and/or your contribution envelope will be collected on Palm Sunday, April 9th at the 10:30 a.m. Mass. An important aspect of Lent is to make some sacrifice. Your sacrifices will not go in vain.  



NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS FOR LENT
During the Lenten Season, we ask that you please bring one non-perishable item each Sunday as you enter Mass. We will have baskets at the entrances of the Church for the food items. We will continue to collect the non-perishable items through Palm Sunday. Below is a schedule of the non-perishable food items that we need. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.

Mar. 26th - 4th Sunday of Lent - Toilet Tissue/Bar Soap
Apr. 2nd -5th Sunday of Lent - Canned Hams
Apr. 9th- Palm Sunday - Dish Detergent

Volunteers are always needed at the Food Pantry. Our Food Pantry gives out food to those in need on the 2nd & 4th Saturday of each month. Call Joe Tierney at (609) 234-0216 or Sue McGuinness at (609) 735-0260 for further details on how you can help with our Food Pantry.



FAMILY DAY – APRIL 2nd
