Thank you for your generous support for our Manna Food Drive
My Dear Parishioners,
Thank you for your generous support for our Manna Food Drive. Even though we are still not at full strength with church attendance, we once again 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.
I want to thank all those involved with recording the Mass whether audio (for radio broadcast on FM-WRDV 89.3 on Sundays at 9:00 a.m.) or video available on our website, www.saintjosephchurch.us. These recordings have been a most important tool for evangelization especially during these days of COVID, while the obligation to attend Sunday Mass (for the time being) is still lifted. I apologize that over this past weekend we were unable to post a video of the Saturday Vigil Mass. Instead we included a link to the livestream of St. Robert Bellarmine’s Masses. I have heard from so many how happy and comforted they were to hear/see/pray Mass with their home community. It has proven to be a vital link to stay connected. We used to have a sponsor for the radio broadcast, but now we cover the cost of the broadcast ourselves. If anyone is interested in donating towards these important broadcasts, please send a check to St. Joseph, and identify it as for Sunday Broadcasts. Thank you for your support.
God Bless you,
