FOOD DISTRIBUTION: Saint Vincent de Paul food distribution, Saturday, February 17, 2024, Nativity Parish Hall, 1PM to 3PM

LENTEN FOOD DRIVE: The St. Vincent de Paul Society at Nativity distributes food to over 100 needy families in our Parish and community. The parish food pantry shelves are now bare. We are asking for your assistance to restock the pantry with nonperishable food during Lent. We are seeking unexpired canned meats, beans, and vegetables as well as four, cereal, small bottles of cooking oil plus small packages of pasta, rice and beans. Please deliver your donations to the Parish Faith Formation Office at any time the office is open or you may use the black baskets located in the southwest corner of the Church. The donations will be taken to the pantry and distributed to the needy in our Parish and community. Thank you for your donations and support of this important ministry!


LENTEN SOUP SUPPERS: Lenten Soup Suppers will be held after Stations of the Cross each Friday during Lent, beginning at 5:30 pm. Anyone is invited to bring a soup even if you are not a member of the ministries. Help our ministries with this important Lenten service. Come join us for Lenten fellowship!
