Ministries of the Parish
COOKING FOR HOPE - During the Lenten season, when God asks us to give a little more of ourselves, please join us to cook for the HOPE Soup Kitchen of New Rochelle. HOPE serves dinner three evenings a week 52 weeks a year to our neighbors in need. We will be cooking (in our Church kitchen): February 9th – 6:00pm, March 9th – 6:00pm, April 6th –6:00pm, May 11th – 6:00pm and June 8th – 6:00pm.

COMMUNITY FOOD DRIVE - Each week our community collects food staples for the HOPE Food Pantry in New Rochelle. As the weather gets colder, your generous contributions are an enormous help to needy families who are often faced with the continued threat of homelessness, and the difficult decision of paying rent or buying food. Staples such as rice, canned tuna, peanut butter, breakfast cereal, canned vegetables, and pasta are always in great need. For your convenience the drop off bin is located outside the Church office. Your support is always greatly appreciated. An extra special shout out to our Boy Scouts, this week they collected a whopping 700 (!) boxes and cans of pasta, cereal and rice. As a Community, we are blessed to have a group of such caring young men….Thank you so very much.

Scouting —Studies published both in the U.S. (2015) and the U.K. (2016) are now confirming what Scouters have sensed all along. Scouting has a measurable, positive impact in the character development of young people and children who participate in Scouting organizations are likely to have better mental health in middle age. Children demonstrate increased cheerfulness, helpfulness, trustworthiness, hopeful future expectation as well as religious reverence, while learning to be self-reliant. Join us for a future meeting the 1st, 3rd and 5th Friday of each month.
