St. Christopher Parish - Brown Bag Lunch & Hygiene Kit

This Lent, we . . .

Pray, Fast, Serve

Parish-Wide Service Project Results

Weekend of April 6th and 7th

After learning about the reality of hunger in our community, the people of people of Saint Christopher Parish responded wonderfully, as you always do.  Thanks to all of you, we were able to make 858 sandwiches from 78 loaves of bread and assemble 200 hygiene kits.  Our service project won’t end hunger, but as Saint Teresa of Kolkata said, we can still "do small things with great love."

Works of mercy like this not only touch the lives of those we serve, they touch our lives as well.  We become more aware of the need and energized in serving others.  There are many needs and many opportunities to serve our neighbor and we will keep finding ways of involving our Parish members in carrying the Gospel message into our community.

Many thanks to all who made sandwiches and hygiene kits, to all who prayed for those in need, to all the school children who decorated the lunch bags, to all the confirmation students who served as table hosts, and to all who helped set up, clean up, and make the service project run smoothly.  Our special thanks to Loaves & Kitchen Family Kitchen, without whom we would not have been to serve our neighbor so well.
