My Dear Parishioners,
Thank you for your generous support for our Manna Food Drive. Even though our attendance still appears down, due to the Coronavirus, we collected a tremendous amount of food. As of the time I am writing this column I do not know exactly how much food was collected but I can say that it was significant. Thank you also to our “Food Collection volunteers.” Every month they transport our bags of food to help feed those in our area. If anyone is able to help in transporting the food, please contact me, I am sure they could use the help. Our food is taken to one of the Archdiocesan approved distribution sites. The site is managed by the Coordinating Council of Health and Welfare, Inc. The “Coordinating Council” is a group of volunteers whose purpose is to give emergency help to needy families, in the area of Bucks and Montgomery Counties, surrounding Warminster. This aid includes food, help with prescriptions, and other special needs. The Council is supported by donations from area churches, service organizations, businesses, and individuals. If you or someone you know in our area are in need of this assistance, you can go to the Food Cupboard at 75 Downey Drive in Warminster on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. You can call the Food Cupboard at 215-672-9422.
As we are in the midst of prime vacation season, I thought it would be good to remind you of something that pastors of old used to tell their congregations. I hope you have a good vacation, but remember there is no vacation from God. If your plans call for travel, I would suggest going to the website, www.masstimes.org. You can input a city or zip code and it will list all the nearby churches and their Mass times. I have used it and it is very convenient. I also want to thank you for remembering to support your parish while you are enjoying some vacation. One way to do that is by signing up to make your regular weekly donation online. It is very easy, just go to our parish website and click on the “Online Giving” button.
God Bless you,
