St. Mary's Food Kitchen
Every third Monday of each month, Curé of Ars provides lunch at St. Mary’s Food Kitchen. Prior to March 17, 2020, Curé of Ars parishioners would prepare and serve a hot meal that was enjoyed in the dining room; averaging between 350-400 meals served. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, St. Mary’s had to switch from hot lunches to sack lunches. The number of lunches Curé of Ars now provides is approximately 750-875.
How can you help? We will be collecting donations again on January 18. Please go online, https://cureofars.com/st-marys-food-kitchen to sign up to donate your food, water, time (help put together the lunch sacks), and/or give a monetary donation. We are also collecting reusable bags to help with distributing lunches.
Curé of Ars is forming a Respect Life Committee and everyone is invited to our first meeting on January 12 at 7 pm in the Fr. Burak Room. We will discuss projects and ideas to support the Archdiocese's Respect Life Campaign and ways to promote Pro-Life initiatives at Curé. If you signed up to volunteered at the Gabriel Project table last month, please attend this meeting as we will be talking about The Gabriel Project as well. Masks are required and social distancing recommendations will be observed.
