kids

Thanks to our awesome Kids Against Hunger crew!!  As you can see, they are the proud packers of 6,696 healthy meals which will be shipped to the hungry of our city and the world.  Each meal is designed specifically to provide maximum nutrition, be easy to ship and prepare—and taste good!  May God bless our volunteers, and those they have served, abundantly!

Thanks, too, to our Social Ministries Committee for supporting this effort with a donation from the parish tithe, which paid for the food.  What a blessing!

Prayer

Lord God, by the creation of the first Eve and her spouse, you made marriage and the family the foundation of all human community.

By the birth of your Son, Jesus, to the new Eve, Mary, our mother, and her most chaste spouse, Joseph, you radically altered human history. Through this Holy Family you made a path for our salvation.

Strengthen the families of this world and impart to them the gifts of the Holy Spirit.May the upcoming World Meeting of Families with the Holy Father serve to give you glory, and bring strength and fortitude to families, who are being assaulted by evil from every direction.

May the meeting be a source of light and hope to all the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
