Entries for March 2019



March 23rd and 24th

Fill the Bus is a parish-wide food drive sponsored by the American Heritage Girls and Boy Scouts, We are trying to FILL the Boy Scout bus with food and paper products that will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry at Little Flower Church.
Kroger bags will be handed out at the doors after the Masses on March 16 and 17.
Fill them with non-perishable food items such as canned meat, canned vegetables (corn, green beans, carrots) and spaghetti sauce/noodles, etc.  The food pantry is also in need of paper towels, toilet paper, toiletries and tissues.  Return your bag to the bus in the lower parking lot before ALL Masses on March 23rd and 24th. Fill the Bus has been a huge success in past years, so let's make it even bigger and better this year! Thank you in advance for your generosity.
