Opportunities to Help  
We Need Volunteers for Saturday, August 25, 4:30-6:30PM   
Interested in Volunteering With This Great Organization?  
DID YOU KNOW that our Parish serves approximately 150-175 hungry patrons each month at A Just Harvest Community Kitchen in Rogers Park.  We'd love to have you join this ongoing ministry.  Questions? Contact Jenny Smith or Suzie Peregrine for more information and/or to volunteer.
Most volunteers leave the kitchen with the sense that they have personally gained more than they have given. Come see for yourself.
