The works of mercy are charitable actions by which we come to the aid of our neighbor in his spiritual and bodily necessities.
(Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2447)

St. Mary's Pantry provides food, paper, and cleaning supplies to all in need.

 

_________

As always, we thank all of our parishioners for your continual support, both financially and with your generous food donations. We are so very grateful for you all. Thank you for your year-round support that allows us to share your generosity with our neighbotrs.

St. Mary's Food Pantry could use a little help with donations of baby diapers or Pull-Ups in sizes 5 and 6, please. We have plenty of the smaller sizes - thank you!

In addition, we can use your help with cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter, canned fruit and soup. We especially need cereal right now, please - we've depleted our supply and this is a staple for many of our clients.

All donations are appreciated! Please place all items in a bag and leave in the back of the church (by the American and Papal flags) before or after Masses. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!

FOOD DISTRIBUTION

St. Pat's DoorIn general, food give-outs are on the fourth Saturday of every month, from 8:30 - 10 a.m., in St. Pat's Hall. Sometimes, the third Saturday, if the fourth falls on a holiday weekend. During November, we distribute the food on the 3rd Saturday before Thanksgiving. We do the same for the month of December.

The next date for food pick-up at Saint Mary's Food Pantry will be Saturday, December 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at St. Pat's Hall.

Should you have an emergency need for food before our regular monthly pick-up, you can call 732-721-7418; someone will call you back as soon as possible.

DONATIONS

Food PantryOn the first Saturday/Sunday of each month, your bag of donated supplies can be left at the back of our Church, near the Papal and American flags, before or after Mass. If need be, you can also deposit bags on other weekends before/after Sunday Mass.

You may also donate cash or checks. Your charity is used to purchase perishable items and/or food gift cards. There is a poor box at the back of our Church for this purpose. For checks, please make payable to St. Mary Church and place in the memo "For St. Mary's Food Pantry".

Please do not leave any food donations outside of the entrance to the Food Pantry (St. Pat’s Hall) or at the rectory. Please leave all food donations in the lobby of the church, near the American flag. As always, please check your expiration dates and thank you so very much for your donations and cooperation!

The Food Pantry appreciates all that you do for those in need!
