Do a Good Turn- Msgr. Belford has advised me that the St. Teresa’s Food Pantry, which serves the needy in our community, is chronically low on food.  He appreciates the amount of food that we collect during Scouting For Food, but asked if we could do more.  So, once per month, we are going to request donations of non-perishable food items that we can give to the pantry. Our first collection will be this Friday. Please donate if you can. “To whom much is given, much is expected.”
