St. Francis Inn Annual Mass and Benefit
St. David Parish, St. Vincent de Paul Society and Queen of Angels School will host our annual benefit for the St. Francis Inn with Mass on Monday February 22 at 7:30 P.M. Fr. Michael Duffy and the Franciscans from Philadelphia’s lower Kensington section will be with us. We share their ministry by collecting food and by giving our Mass collection. This year OLHC Prayer Group will double all the money collected for the Franciscans. Donations can be taken to Father Curran Hall from February 13th to February 22nd until 8:00 P.M. This is the 2nd Monday of Lent. Please start preparing non-perishable food, diapers, baby formula, blankets, toiletries, shoes and financial sacrifice. PLEASE— NO CLOTHING DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME. Pray for our outreach, the poor and the Franciscan Priests, Brothers, Sisters and the young adults who give one or more years of their lives to help others.
