Please don’t forget the poor and bring a can good or two with you to Mass on the weekends at St. Elizabeth of Hungary and St. Casimir.

BEANS AND BREAD NEED OUR HELP . . .As we now are providing bagged lunches for both Beans & Bread and Helping Up Mission ~ please continue to write notes of encouragement, a greeting and for younger hands a drawing on the bags as the folks whom we are feeding are so genuinely moved by your caring thought. We have been asked to provide bagged lunches for their Tuesday & Wednesday meals a combined total of 350 lunches for the two days.
As such, we have committed to providing 350 bagged lunches every TUESDAY until Beans/Bread can be fully operational again and ask for you help.
The bagged lunches should include:
a meat and cheese sandwich of any kind, any variation, or just meat, or just cheese
Please NO PB&J due to peanut allergies
Any type of bread, however, please NO bread with seeds – (sandwich does not need to be cut) put into sandwich bag or wax paper
a sweet treat/dessert
chips or something crunchy
fruit cup or applesauce
Please be mindful we are trying to add more fiber to the lunches provides; Fiber sources such as oranges, clementines, mandarins, tangerines, bananas, and wheat bread. For those who currently include fruit cups or apple sauce with the lunch, please continue to do so as they are a source of fiber. Whatever overabundance you wish to include into the bagged lunches, please continue to do so~!
Individually wrapped snacks/treats, fruit cups, pudding cups, bottled water or juice boxes are needed as they will be distributed to low income families and shelters.
We are asking each person to consider preparing 10 bagged lunches; if you are able to provide lunches, please email Pam Protani at email@example.com or call 443-413-8329 and let her know how many lunches you will be able to provide. If you cannot reach Pam, please contact Bernie at the parish office firstname.lastname@example.org, 410-276-1981.
Reminder: early collection begins 7:30, curbside in front of St. Casimir Church and collect until 9:30 ~ if you are available to help collect/deliver please let me know. Please pull up and someone will meet you at your car so you will not need to get out; all lunches, snacks/treats, water/juices will be delivered to Beans & Bread at 10:00 AM.
The lunches you will provide are surely a gift of kindness to those in need, less fortunate…
We are now collecting gently used Spring and Summer children’s clothing, newborn to 12 years of age that will be designated solely for Assisi House; when dropping off, please put into a bag and mark on the outside children’s clothing and age which will help tremendously when sorting. Assisi House is also in need of gently used Women’s and Men’s clothing, when dropping off, please mark on outside of bag clothing designate.
Thank you so very much and remember,
We are all in this together~!
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.
