St. Andrew parishioners, friends, and visitors are invited to bring an unwrapped toy or make a donation of funds for a gift to be given to an infant, girl, or boy, up to age 12, or non-perishable food items for those in need on Saturday December 12th at the 5pm Mass and at all the Masses on Sunday December 13th. All gifts will be brought to the Altar during the time of the reception of the gifts.
Gift suggestions are: board games, stuffed animals, backpacks, basket balls, etc. Food items can be canned vegetables, soups, 1-2 lb. pack of pasta, rice or beans, and any money donations are appreciated.
Your generous contributions in past years have helped many families, children, and the homeless. During this year over 10,000 people have received either help through-out the year from your donations.
The St. Vincent de Paul conference here at St. Andrew was the first in the San Gabriel area and was founded here in 1926. Many people have helped with their generous donations of gifts, time, and funds. Please continue to support our parish and keep our brothers and sisters who need our help in mind.
“…Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.”
May God Bless each and everyone!
Beginning March 2016, our parish will have an opportunity to follow Jesus by serving the poor and vulnerable in a practical way. We will be partnering with the Family Promise program to provide temporary housing and other assistance to homeless families in our local region.
WHAT IS FAMILY PROMISE?
There are 178 Family Promise affiliates in 41 states across the country. Family Promise’s mission is “to help homeless children by assisting their families to stay intact and to regain stable housing and employment within a supportive, volunteer-driven community.” Family Promise holds dear the core values of hospitality, empowerment, compassion, mobilizing communities, and hope.
OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SERVE TOGETHER
This is a great opportunity for us as parishioners to serve together. It’s a wonderful way for our families to participate in ministry, instilling in our children the care and respect that God has for the poor and vulnerable. We are also asking that different parish ministries sponsor a day on which to provide meals and other materials or services for the families who will be staying with us. This is a chance to exercise any gifts or talents you might have for the benefit of neighbors who are trying to transition out of a difficult situation.
