|Love Basket Mid-Year Food Drive||The Love Basket is a non-profit, all volunteer emergency food assistance program in and for residents of Indiana County. Love Basket is not affiliated with any other agency and receives no government funding - and thus relies solely on the generosity of the churches, schools, businesses and private residents. There has been a tremendous strain put on the normal resources of Love Basket due to the number of persons served and are no longer able to meet requests received.|
In response, Love Basket is coordinating a 2018 Indiana County Church Mid-Year Food Drive this weekend, July 21-22, in order to restock shelves. They are especially in need of canned fruits, vegetables and meats, peanut butter and cereal. Please bring your donation to the Church and place your items in the designated spot in the Narthex.
The parishioners and friends of Church of the Good Shepherd have supported this project in the past and will hopefully be generous again this year. Remember that “Feeding the Hungry” is a corporal work of Mercy. Thanks so much for supporting our neighbors in need!
|Annual Mission Co-Op Appeal||We have just received word that on the weekend of August 4 - 5, 2018, we, in conjunction with Saints Simon and Jude Parish, Blairsville, will be having our Annual Mission Co-Op Appeal. Please see the bulletin next weekend for details on the religious community (we have not received their information yet) that will be sending its representatives to seek assistance in their missionary works. May God bless all who share the Good News in Mission activities.|
