Brothers,

As you know, the next Parish Food Drive sponsored by the Knights of Columbus will be for the benefit of St. Peter Catholic Church’s Food Pantry.  It will take place on Saturday, September 26th, from 8:45 am to Noon and is again on the blacktop of St. Bridget.  Please note the earlier time.  We will deliver the food immediately following the drive.

We are promoting the Food Drive now with the assistance of our parish staff:

  • The food drive will be included in the Parish Bulletin
  • The food drive will be in the Announcements section on the home page of the St. Bridget website
  • It will be mentioned during announcements at Masses

What can you do?

Please help this to be a success by promoting the food drive in your family, with friends, and other St. Bridget networks.

  2. Send the attached PDF to your family and friends
  3. Forward this email with your message to others with the image of the flyer (below)

Brothers,

As we market the Christmas cards and ornaments we need to also carry on our charitable work by distributing food bags for the food pantry this weekend. We have only a limited supply but I will endeavour to put them out Saturday morning before I go out of town. I know Augie is also out-of-town for his usual 5:30 Mass on Saturday, so we will need someone(s) to help at that Mass and at 7:30 on Sunday in our stead.

Thanks for all you do.

Fraternally,  Mike K.

P.S.  Catholic Charities is going to try to locate a store to replace Martin’s that could provide us a consistent supply going forward. The Wegman family is well-known in Catholic philanthropy circles. I think they are checking with them
