8th Level Students Collecting Food on Sunday, Oct. 22 for CARE Food Pantry

Our 8th grade students will work on a service project to collect food for our CARE Food Pantry on Sunday, Oct. 22. Donations can be brought to the Church and placed on the altar at all masses that weekend. The students will have a truck outside to collect all donations. Their goal is to “Fill that Truck” with food for families in need. Any donations of non-perishable food would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all 8th grade students, their families and catechists for helping those in need. We are truly blessed with your desire to serve and you are all a wonderful example of what it truly means to be a Disciple of Christ.
