Faith in Action Group Spring Food Drive

From the earliest times, God has enjoined his people to care for the poor. "For the poor will never cease to be in the land; therefore I command you, saying, 'You shall freely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and poor in your land.'" (Deuteronomy 15:11).  Jesus reminds us that “The poor you will always have with you…” (Mark 14:7).  It’s easy to forget that there really are families in Ashland who would go hungry without the Food Pantry.   Grocery bags with a wish list will be distributed on June 4th and 5th at all Masses.  We ask parishioners to return the bags filled with non-perishable groceries when they come to Mass on June 11th and 12thParishioners willing to help to collect the full bags please contact Sarah, 508-881-3690 sbcurrie22@comcast.net

Please help us re-stock the Ashland food Pantry!

 Hunger never takes a vacation!
