The bagged lunches should include:
a meat and cheese sandwich of any kind, any variation, or just meat, or just cheese
Please NO PB&J due to peanut allergies
Any type of bread, however, please NO bread with seeds – (sandwich does not need to be cut) put into sandwich bag or wax paper

The lunches you will provide are surely a gift of kindness to those in need, less fortunate…

THIS IS WHAT REALLY HAPPENS AT THE EUCHARIST (CATHOLIC MASS) . . . Take a few moments to view this video. In a very powerful way it expresses beautifully what it is we do at mass. It is the center of our faith. It is from the Eucharist that we draw our strength and it is the precious gift that Jesus has left us: His very presence. Please join us to adore and worship His presence in the Eucharist on the last Saturday of every month from 3:45 PM to 4:45 PM in the Church.
