The Matthew-25 Collection will be taken the weekend of November 23/24, 2019. There will be a second collection taken that supports parish and Diocesan ministries focused on proving food, clothing and shelter for the needy within the 15 counties of the Diocese. Because of your generosity last year, more than $231,000.00 was distributed to 34 agencies in the Diocese. Our Parish benefited as well as 25% of what was collected stayed in our Parish to support our ministries. Please be as generous as possible in next week’s collection. There is an envelope in your packet that you may use for the collection.
Our Mary’s Helpers Food and Clothing Pantry received a Grant from Matthew-25 for the 2018/2019 year. The grant enabled the Food Pantry to purchase food, clothing and shelter for the underprivileged in our local community. The staff of Mary’s Helpers is most appreciative of receiving the Grant from the Matthew-25 Collection.
