THANK YOU!!! The St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP) Food Pantry members thank all of the children and families who bring food items to donate at the Sunday 9 AM Mass! These are delightful additions to our basic offerings.
As a Eucharistic Minister regularly assigned to this Mass, I am able to observe how delighted the children are to walk up to the altar and deposit their offerings into the basket: I see big brothers and sisters helping the younger children, and little ones toddling back to their seats so proud of what they have done! I have noticed the smiles from parents that convey pride in their children’s simple gift and in the courage it took to leave the pew and go up to the altar. Thanks to all who help to teach our children such important lessons about sharing with, and praying for, our neighbors. Thank you for your continued donations!
