Our Lady of Grace Parish will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 26th at 9:00am at the Drive-In Mass in the Rear Parking Lot.
There is much to be thankful for in our lives and this is a good time to consider ways of helping those around us who are in need. The monetary collection from this Mass will benefit the work of our St. Vincent de Paul Society. As in years past, the St. Vincent de Paul Society will be taking donations of food, cash and gift cards at the Mass.
Many of our clients are single and have very minimal access to cooking facilities. Items most needed for our pantry are: Tuna, canned meats, peanut butter, jam, low-sugar cereal, shelf-stable milk, canned vegetables & fruits, canned chili, soups/stews. Please no “holiday food”.
This year for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, we are giving our families a turkey along with a Lucky gift card to purchase their own food. For those who are not able to cook, we are giving them a Shari’s gift card. As you give your donations, please pray for those families who will be helped and for those of us in this ministry.
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
