FOOD PANTRY
Wesley House, our local food pantry, for the second year in a row, has been given the opportunity to double any gifts of food
or money donated to them during the months of March and April. Mr. Alan Feinstein, Cranston, RI, has announced that he
will match any donation of food or money contributed to Wesley House; they will receive $1.00 for each pound item or
dollar. If you wish to donate by check, please make it payable to Wesley House and have “Feinstein” on the memo line.
For your information.
***Our parish has supported the Wesley House food pantry for years. It is a great way to centralize the distribution of food in
our community. This eliminates the duplication of efforts. Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Wichita subsidizes the salary
of a full time social worker, Alberta, at Wesley House. This is just one of the ways the Catholic Church provides assistance
to those in need in the Pittsburg area.

Please remember to name Our Lady of Lourdes or St. Mary’s Colgan Schools in your will.
May we leave a legacy of faith and education for the generations to come.
Please consider informing Fr. Tom or the parish office of your legacy plans, kraus@smcschools.org
