Thanksgiving Offerings

The night before Thanksgiving Michael Heveran, Vincent Kaufmann and I traveled to King of Prussia. The catechism school at Mother of Divine Providence R.C. Church had its Thanksgiving service for the students and their parents. The offering at this service was for each student to bring in items to stock The King’s Jubilee’s pantry. The grade school had gathered a similar offering earlier in the day. We brought two car loads home. We can use about half in our soups and spaghetti. The other half is going to restock Word in Action International’s food pantry.

Turkeys are coming in from “Turkeys R Us” at St. Philip Antiochian Orthodox Church and from individuals. Our freezer is nearly full. We baked four turkeys to serve on the street and in Ridge Avenue Shelter the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and delivered seven turkeys to families in Philadelphia. The more we receive; the more we can give away.

Peace Mennonite Church in East Greenville gathered men’s coats for us to give away.

May God bless all those who bless Him in ” his distressing disguise.”
