NOVEMBER FREE COMMUNITY LUNCH

Leave a comment

 We wish to thank all of the volunteers who came out on a blustery Saturday to help prepare and serve our Thanksgiving meal on November 18. Also, many thanks to the men who delivered meals to the homebound and to the homeless. We provided 112 individual meals and 38 persons came back for a second plate, making a total of 150 meals. The many donations of warm winter items was greatly appreciated by the recipients. We will serve a Christmas ham dinner on Saturday, December 16. We are in need of fresh fruit and cookies as well as personal products (shampoo, body lotion, liquid soap, and deodorant). If you can provide any of these items, please contact Mary Koppi at 815-232-4687. Thank you for your continued generous support of our ministry to feed the hungry and we wish you and yours a Blessed Christmas Season. ~The Society of St Vincent de Paul

We are two Catholic Churches close to downtown Freeport, IL. Our communities are over 150 years old and have been dedicated to our lord Jesus Christ since our inception. We believe in God the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of ythe Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilot, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
