St. Joseph Congregation will partner with Catholic Relief Services to provide thousands of meals for the needy in Burkina Faso – a struggling African country.
Parishioners are being asked to help create meal packages, during a Sunday, March 22 "Helping Hands" gathering in the Parish Hall.
Check in begins at 11:45 a.m., after the 10:30 a.m. Mass. Meal packaging is noon to 2 p.m.
We need as many as 120 volunteers who will work in groups of eight to create mixtures of protein, rice, beans and other ingredients in soup packages for distribution in Burkina Faso.
We need to raise $5,500 to support purchase of the ingredients, supplies, and transportation to Catholic Relief Services centers in Burkina Faso. A portion of this money has already been raised. A second collection at the February 29 and March 1 Masses will be taken for this project.
