As in years past, we will again take up a monetary collection to provide Thanksgiving meals for needy families in our local community. The money collected will be used to purchase gift cards for food, which will be distributed to the families by Merrimack Valley Catholic Charities. Each year Catholic Charities matches our parish to a number of specific families. The money we collect is divided evenly among all the individuals, with each family receiving a gift card amount based on the number of people in their family. The family will then be able to purchase the items that make the celebration special to their family. It’s not always about turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce! And it’s a nice way for us to reach out and connect person to person, family to family, parish family to community family. Outreach Group members will be stationed at the back of the church after all Masses this coming weekend, November 9/10, to collect donations. What each family receives depends on what we collect—your generosity is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
