SAINT JOSEPH'S TABLE FOR HOMELESS

When a devastating drought hit Sicily in the 1600s, people prayed to St. Joseph to intercede with God to send rain for bountiful crops. Their prayers were answered and their crops were abundant. In honor of St. Joseph, Sicilians erected lovely tables overflowing with food. As years went by, the tables were moved to the churches, and food was donated to the poor.


This year Church of the Ascension would like to honor St. Joseph, the patron of our Diocese, with a St. Joseph's Table in Worner Hall during:

-5:00 pm Mass on Thursday, March 18, 2021

-8:00 am Mass on Friday, March 19, 2021.


Suggested food items for the homeless: Granola bars and Protein bars, Fruit cups and Applesauce cups, Beef jerky and Dried fruit, Peanut butter, Cheese crackers, Pop-top cans (tuna, chicken, chili, ravioli, pork & beans), Juice boxes, Trail Mix and Packaged Nuts.

NO GLASS CONTAINERS.
