Mission Statement: Share Thy Bounty is a service program that reaches beyond the boundaries of our parish. Parishioners donate food items that become available to local organizations and agencies who in turn distribute to the working poor and to those in need.
Current Ministry Activities: The first Sunday of every month, parishioners bring bags of food to the Church Narthex before mass. Volunteers deliver and assemble the food for pick up at the Family Center.
Did You Know. . . In the cold of January, the parishioners of St. Francis provided over 250 pounds of food to Sandalwood Food Pantry through our Sharing Thy Bounty Program? Much needed soup and diapers helped fill the shelves that were fairly empty. Your continued support for our friends, neighbors, and families is greatly appreciated and most definitely needed.
Current Volunteer Opportunities: Always looking for volunteers to handle Share Thy Bounty at various masses. Please see contact information above.
Our next Sharing Thy Bounty weekend will be February 1st and 2nd. Our receiving agency will be Holy Family Food Pantry. They are in desperate need of soup, jelly, and non-dairy milk (in the grocery aisle in boxes not powder or condensed). Donations may be left in the donation cart in the Narthex or they may be brought to the Family Center during Fellowship Sunday after the 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Masses. Your continued support to help those in need is much appreciated.
We are called to love the poor; those who are hungry, thirsty, ill; those who are strangers.
