As we think about the sacrifice that Christ made for us as we enter into Holy Week, we too can make an act of generosity and sacrifice for others.
On March 19-20, please bring bags of nonperishable food items to Pack our Pews! Simply drop off your non-perishable food items before Mass (or after) into one of the reserved pews, which are located in front of church on St. Joseph’s side.
All donations will be given to our Lonsdale Area Food Shelf.
If you prefer to donate money, please place your check (made payable to LAFS) in the collection basket.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” ~Matthew 25:35
