SJB's Food Drive Begins in October
SJB begins a season of service with a food drive for the St. Camillus Food Pantry. This month is our traditional Service Liturgy and food collection for St. Camillus Pantry. A flyer will be going out next week asking for food donations to support our neighbors who do not have enough to eat. We will collect the food October 15-26, and our Service Liturgy will be on October 26 at 10:45. St. Camillus has asked us to deliver the food on Thursday, November 1, around 2 pm.
In November, we collect food for nearby families in need and deliver the meals for Thanksgiving. In December, we have our Shower for Baby Jesus. If you can help as a volunteer in any of these efforts, please see the flyer and signup form.
