As our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us in Mathew 25, which was read to us prior to the Lenten season, the Charity Committee would like to undertake two special projects to help the poor and the needy:

1.) Create care packages of personal hygiene items for the homeless, to be collected on Mary of Egypt Sunday (April 2) to be distributed that same week.

Items needed are: Washcloths, travel size shampoo, bar soap, comb, toothbrushes, disposable razors, toothpaste, lip balm, deodorant, hand sanitizer  

2.) Make sandwiches for the poor during bright week.

Items needed are: bread, tomatoes, mustard, paper bags (lunch size), mayonnaise, plastic bags (quart size), lettuce 

We would like to invite parishioners and members of the Forum to participate in these activities. Please pray for us to be successful in these endeavors for the glory of Christ our Lord.      

God bless!
