Each year a food collection is taken up throughout the Archdiocese of Washington during Lent. Grocery bags will be available next Sunday, the 19th of March. If you wish to participate, please take a bag or bags, purchase your non-perishable food items and bring the filled bags back the following Sunday. Please note: the bags usually have a chart on the front asking you to purchase items based on the first letter of your last name. Purchase whatever you like! Many people look for bargains or use coupons to make their money stretch farther. Whatever you give will be greatly appreciated by many needy people.
