Serving the Catholic Community of Castro Valley

Thanksgiving Day Liturgy

Our  Lady  of  Grace Parish  will  celebrate  a  Mass of  Thanksgiving  on   Thursday, November 25th at 9:00am in the Church. 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.  St. Vincent de Paul will once again be accepting donations of food, gift cards and.  Due to some pantry issues we can only accept food in cans and jars (no cereal, pasta, rice or dry beans).  We are in need of:  peanut butter, jam, shelf stable milk, canned tuna and chicken, fruit, chili and soup.  Please no canned beans – we have plenty.

We thank you for your ongoing support.   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!
