We have two suggestions for almsgiving as a parish community:
Each March Minnesota FoodShare runs the largest food drive in the state and restocks all 300 local food shelves across Minnesota. Because of Minnesota FoodShare’s access to discount products and programs, your cash contributions can be stretched two, three and even five times further.
Additionally, each weekend during Lent OLP will collect food for the Minnehaha food shelf. We will announce from the pulpit and bulletin the items being collected the following Sunday, so watch the bulletin each week.
Our Lady of Peace Home and Hospice
Our Lady of Peace Home and Hospice is operated by the Franciscan Health Community and treats terminally ill patients who are unable to afford care in other nursing facilities or to continue care at home. On the weekend of March 14-15 we will be collecting toiletries and cash donations for the patients of Our Lady of Peace Home.
