Wishing you a safe and happy Halloween!
The month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
A prayer you can say throughout this month is:
Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Monthly Collection for the Food Pantry on November 3
St. Elizabeth’s parishioners donate food on the first Sunday of every month for the St. Camillus Food Pantry. The Pantry distributed 9,000 emergency food packages (more than 200,000 pounds of food) last year, is staffed by 150 volunteers, and receives a wide range of financial support from local government, faith communities, businesses, and individuals. Our next parish collection will be on Sunday, November 3. The 1,633 bags of groceries you donated so far this year have made a big difference in the Pantry’s ability to serve it’s needy clients. The top four food priorities are: Vegetable Oil, Masa Harina (for tortillas), Black Bean (dried), and White Rice. Other key needs are: Dried Milk or UHT Shelf-Stable Milk, Canned Fruit (pineapple and peaches), Oatmeal (canisters), Spaghetti, Pasta and Pasta Sauce, Cornflakes or Cheerios, Macaroni and Cheese, Canned Tomatoes, Tuna Fish, Canned Corn, Canned Peas, and Peanut Butter. (The toothpaste, toothbrushes, and toiletries that some parishioners include with their food donations also continue to be very much appreciated.)
