The St. Vincent dePaul Society will be sponsoring a Food Drive Mon., Oct. 12th through Sun., Oct. 18th. The Narthex will be open from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM.

Please consider helping stock up the SVdP Food Pantry by bringing donations of Non-perishable canned goods: meats or vegetables; household items such as: toothpaste, toilet paper, paper towels, diapers (baby and adult), cooking oil, sugar, and any non-perishables that you usually buy for your own home.
