"Feed the Hungry"

The Food Pantry

Our pantry serves many residents in our community each week. Using fresh vegetables from the parish's St. Patrick’s Garden, donations from parishioners, Panera Bread, and others, gives a small supply of food to those in need each week.  Your Poor Box and food contributions left in the baskets at the rear of the church help to support both of these efforts.  Pasta and sauce, canned vegetables and meats, and dry goods are regularly needed staples.  Parishioners may also volunteer to help with the Food Pantry, which is open Thursdays from 2PM to 3PM with volunteers arriving earlier to help put together "Setups" for pantry clients.  Contact Deacon Mark to volunteer.

"If you can't feed a hundred people,    
then feed just one." - Mother Teresa


Growing for Giving

Saint Patrick's Garden Group

We have an ongoing garden, the St Patrick’s community garden, located on the North Lawn. The garden began in 2013 and provided hundreds  of pounds of fresh vegetables to our Food Pantry for distribution to members of the local community.   We are planning to continue and expand our efforts this year and are always looking for folks to join in our planning, preparation, planting, maintenance and harvesting as we move from spring, through summer and into fall. No experience necessary; just an open heart to serve those in need and a willingness to get your hands dirty!  Interested? Contact Deacon Mark to volunteer.

Cooking for the Homeless

The Casserole Program

Giving parishioners the chance to live the gospel teaching in the kitchen! "For I was hungry and you gave me food" (Matthew 25:35).  We meet monthly to prepare nutritious casseroles for Baltimore's homeless.  Please join us for a fun volunteer opportunity on the Fourth Saturday of Every Month 2-4 pm, in the Parish Hall. Casseroles are donated to Our Daily Bread, Catholic Charities' signature program for the homeless and hungry.  Many hundreds of casseroles have been prepared by our volunteers.  Contact Charlotte for details and to confirm the next casserole-making gathering.
