Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Thank you to all who have helped to support families in need this past week.  Well over 100 turkeys were collected for the hungry, exceeding expectations.  Families from Our Lady of the Rosary in Louisburg will be the recipients along with families from our partnership with Passage Home.  The Inter-Faith Food Shuttle will receive any “left over” turkeys for distribution.

As you know the devastation from Hurricane Sandy continues to impact many, especially among the Jersey shore.  Our parish’s disaster recovery team is looking forward to organizing teams to go help out areas affected by Sandy.  As the needs are made known to us we are making plans to help out our Franciscan parish on Long Beach Island.  If you are interested in helping, please contact Janet Mintel at 919-676-6352 or jmintel@nc.rr.com. It may be  a few weeks or months before we can work out a timeline.

 

In the peace of Christ,

Fr. Mark
