Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive

Share what you “can.” Bring canned and nonperishable food items to any Sunday Mass on November 13 and 14 weekend. We will also collect food at the 10AM Thanksgiving Day Mass (November 25). Consider nutritious items that contribute to the good health of people, and be sure items are not past expiration. Suggestions: canned tuna, chicken, salmon; canned vegetables and fruits; canned or boxed meals (soup, mac and cheese); canned or dried beans; pasta, rice, cereal; 100% fruit juice; shelf-stable milk; low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar products. Items will be given to Our Lady of Mercy and Our Lady of the Angelus food panties and will end up on the table of someone in need.

Christmas Giving Tree Toy Drive

Begins at Sunday Masses on November 27 and 28 (the first Sunday of Advent 2021) and continues through December 11/12 weekend. More information will be posted soon.
