Social Concerns
Basic to the criteria of judgment is Matthew 25: "I was hungry and you fed me." Each week our offertory procession will include a basket of food for those in need. Please remember to bring an item of non-perishable food with you when you come to worship. You may place the food in the large wicker baskets at the back of the church. Food will be distributed through St. Monica Social Concerns Ministry, St. Vincent de Paul and Catholic Charities.

Visits to the Sick
Eucharistic Ministers are available to visit homebound or nursing homes. Please contact the parish office to arrange for visitation.
