LENTEN FOOD DRIVE
Hunger is an ever-present reality in our community. Local food pantries are experiencing a great demand for food. To help replenish supplies, Catholic Charities and the Archdiocese of Washington together are sponsoring the Lenten Food Drive. Bags will be handed out to you during the weekend of March 23rd-24th.
Kindly bring your filled bags back to church during the weekend of March 30th-31th. Our food collection will be donated to both our own food pantry and to Catholic Charities. If you wish, you may make a contribution to “Catholic Charities” with a note that it is for the food drive. Thank you for all you do to help feed the hungry and to bring hope to the poorest of poor.
