The bagged lunches should include:
a meat and cheese sandwich of any kind, any variation, or just meat, or just cheese

THIS IS WHAT REALLY HAPPENS AT THE EUCHARIST (CATHOLIC MASS) . . . Take a few moments to view this video. In a very powerful way it expresses beautifully what it is we do at mass. It is the center of our faith. It is from the Eucharist that we draw our strength and it is the precious gift that Jesus has left us: His very presence. Please join us to adore and worship His presence in the Eucharist on the last Saturday of every month from 3:45 PM to 4:45 PM in the Church.
